Sarim Fassi Fihri
Director of Moroccan Cinema Center (CCM)
Home to one of the biggest physical studio lots in the world by area, Morocco can lay claim to being the Arab’s world top location destination, attracting more than $40 million worth of production in 2017, estimats Sarim. He also sits on MENA’s biggest production fund. And just as Dubai cancels its film festival this year, there is speculation that Marrakesh will return with its own festival this year after it went on hiatus in 2017.
