The Tetouan Mediterranean Film Festival

A Festival. A great story

Since its creation in 1985 by the association “Friends of Tetouan Cinema” (FTC), The Tetouan Mediterranean Film Festival has never ceased to promote mare nostrum cinematographies and to uphold the values ​​of a demanding and diverse cinephilia. Known for its commitment and contribution to the dissemination of Mediterranean cinema, the festival is first and foremost that of a city, Tetouan, fertile ground for the arts which, from music to the visual arts, has housed and continues to host artistic movements. which know an influence well beyond the region. It is therefore in this city with a favorable cultural climate that, quite naturally, a handful of teacher-film enthusiasts imagined this project, even as the film clubs, in which they were formed, were disappearing in Morocco.
