The Marrakech film festival takes place in late November / early December each year. There is often a strong indian flavour with tributes to Hindi cinema.
There are usually free screening of films projected on large screens in the main square. The atmosphere in the Marrakech old town is truly magical during the film festival.
The tenth Marrakech International film festival is approaching. From the 3rd to the 10th of December the Red City will host this extravaganza which like so much else has its heart in the Jemma al Fnaa square. Huge screens are erected in the square for the free viewing of festival films.
