A posthumous tribute will be paid to the late Noureddine Saïl during the opening ceremony of the 22nd edition of the National Film Festival (FNF), which will take place in Tangier from September 16 to 24, and which will be dedicated to his memory, indicates the Moroccan Cinema Center (CCM).

Teacher, general inspector of philosophy, member of the permanent commission for education-training for all and accessibility, producer and film critic, Noureddine Saïl is the author of several films including the feature film directed by Mohamed Abderrahman Tazi “Le Grand Voyage” (1981), which will be screened as the opening film of the festival, on September 16 at the Ahmed Boukmakh Cultural Center (Tangier), specifies the CCM in a press release.

Director of programs at the Moroccan television channel (1984-1986), this pioneer of the Moroccan 7th art carried out the same mission at Canal+ Horizons (1990-2000), before being appointed general manager of 2M (2000-2003) , then Director of the CCM (2003-2014), where he invested his skills in the service of the national film industry, notes the same source.

At the head of the CCM, the late Saïl stepped up his efforts to reform the production aid fund, allowing the national cinema to move to an average annual production of around twenty films, encouraging South-South cooperation, in particular with the African countries, promote national cinema internationally, and promote Morocco as a destination to host foreign film shoots in our country.


The seventh edition of Beijing’s “Colourful World” cultural exhibition kicked off Thursday in the Chinese capital, with the participation of some thirty countries, including Morocco.
A Moroccan pavilion was set up on this occasion within the vast exhibition center of Shougang Park in the capital, presenting the cultural, civilizational and tourist heritage of Morocco.

Moroccan handicrafts, tourist brochures and other documentation are presented to visitors who come to inquire on site about the main tourist destinations of the Kingdom.

The exhibition aims, according to its organizers, to promote civilizational dialogue and cultural exchanges between the city of Beijing and the rest of the world. It also aims to strengthen friendly relations between China and countries around the world, especially countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative.
