Going all the way back to 1966, Carthage Film Festival is regarded as the oldest event of its kind still active in Africa. The festival started off as biennial, but then in 2014 it became an annual event. Held in October/November, the festival is famous for its various sections such as the official competition for feature films, official competition for first films and the official short film competition.
Another notable section of the festival is its Takmil and Producers Network which is a workshop dedicated to African and Arab projects helping them see the light. The workshop is open for feature films and documentaries at development stage.
