Mes de Marruecos
The inaugural event, "The Month of Morocco," stands as a pioneering initiative crafted through a symbiotic partnership with Fundacion Tres Culturas—an esteemed Foundation intricately interwoven with the administrations of Andalusia and Morocco. Together, they zealously endeavor to champion the rich tapestry of Mediterranean culture, ushering forth a celebration that harmoniously transcends borders and nurtures cultural enlightenment.
In this esteemed collaboration, we take great pleasure in presenting a selection of cinematic marvels hailing from the culturally rich tapestry of Morocco. Among these masterpieces is the profoundly captivating film "HABIBI," a creation helmed by the esteemed director Guillermo Cabot. Notably, this cinematic gem had the distinct honor of being handpicked during our previous edition in 2023, and it swiftly captured the hearts of our discerning audience, emerging as a firm favorite.
