The Moroccan film “HAUT ET FORT” by Nabil AYOUCH in the official competition of the Cannes Film Festival
The organizers of the 74th edition of the Cannes Film Festival announced, today June 3rd of 2021, the participation of the Moroccan feature film “HAUT et FORT”, in Arabic “علي صوتك”, by Nabil AYOUCH in its official competition, among 23 films which will compete from July 6th to 17th, 2021.
This selection is a first in the history of Moroccan cinema at the level of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, whose 74th edition of 2021 stands out as the most anticipated cinema event this year after the global health crisis.
Moroccan cinema has previously participated in parallel sections of the Cannes Film Festival such as “Critics ‘week”, “Un certain regard” or “Directors’ fortnight”.
However, this presence in the official competition of 2021 testifies to the growing international notoriety of Moroccan cinema and offers a chance to win a prize in the official section.
The feature film “HAUT ET FORT” was produced by the company “ALI’N PRODUCTION” in 2020 and benefited from the support fund for the production of cinematographic works.
