Morocco: Bloggers Ignored by Film Festival

Allal El Alaoui reports that the Marrakesh International Film Festival ignores bloggers and freelance film critics, as well as, in some cases, Moroccans in general.


  • Too many Moroccan websides,weblogs and international cinema*goers still debate why FIFM refuses to invite bloggers,cinema-goers and in some cases some cinema lovers.Surely,the foundation will have to answer by electronic mails millions of Moroccans who are willing to participate in Marrakech on line…

  • The entire gentrification of Marrakesh saddens me, honestly. But how many people are really standing up to it?
