For the past ten years, Arab cinema has been making its mark all over the world, in the biggest festivals and on television. What are its major developments since the Arab Spring? What are the themes and concerns of filmmakers? What is the future of Arab cinema in artistic and economic terms, and its relationship with Europe?

These questions are the basis of the Halaqat debate on cinema with 4 selected panelists:

  • Samaher Alqadi, Egyptian director of the documentary AS I WANT
  • ​​​​​​​Fatma Cherif, director of the Gabes Cinema Fen Festival in Tunisia
  • Ely Dagher, Lebanese director of "The Sea Ahead"
  • Reda Benjelloun, director of the documentary series "Des Histoires Et Des Hommes" on the Moroccan channel 2M (via Zoom)

The panel discussion is moderated by Karima Saïdi, director, editor and film teacher.
