The Marrakech International Film Festival (FIFM) (French : Festival International du Film de Marrakech, Arabic: المهرجان الدولي للفيلم بمراكش‎, Amazigh ⴰⵏⵎⵓⴳⴳⴰⵔ ⴰⴳⵔⴰⵖⵍⴰⵏ ⵏ ⵍⴼⵉⵍⵎ ⴳ ⵎⵕⵕⴰⴽⵛ ) is an international film festival founded by the Marrakech International Film Festival Foundation in 2001 and held annually in Marrakech, Morocco. The 14th edition was held from December 5 to 13, 2014.[1]


Since its inaugural year, the FIFM has been one of the biggest events devoted to Moroccan cinema. It is also the site of the principal photography of many international productions.[citation needed]

The festival's jury gathers important international writers, actors and personalities, and aims to reward the best Moroccan and foreign feature and short films.

The International Film Festival of Marrakech is chaired by Prince Moulay Rachid of Morocco.



In 2013, the Jury of the 13th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival, with president of the jury Martin Scorsese and jury members Fatih Akin, Patricia Clarkson, Marion Cotillard, Amat Escalante, Golshifteh Farahani, Anurag Kashyap, Narjiss Nejjar, Park Chan-wook and Paolo Sorrentino, chose award winners amongst the 15 international feature films in competition.[2]
