ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE MIFF AND DIRECTOR OF THE ATLAS WORKSHOPS
The 19th edition of the Marrakech film festival, due to take place last November, had to be postponed in light of the global pandemic; despite this setback, the organizers were able to continue with its industry and talent development programme by conducting the fourth edition of the Atlas Workshops online with the support of Netflix. (The same pattern played out for both events the year before). The two winners of the Atlas Prize for Post-Production both played at the Cannes Film Festival’s Critics’ Week last year: Khadar Ahmed’s THE GRAVEDIGGER’S WIFE and Egyptian filmmaker Omar El Zohairy’s FEATHERS. Rémi will be hoping for better luck with the 2022 festival although its announced dates of November 11- 19 overlap heavily with the now earlier Cairo International Film Festival.
