Written by FDM

Until February 21, the French Institute of Morocco is organizing the 7th edition of the Ana Maghribia (I’m a Moroccan woman) short film competition inviting young people under 30 to shoot and send a 90-second video on the theme “Afri9i.a” (“African”).

(“African”) Supported by the French Institute of Morocco, this competition is intended for young people under 30, offering a 90-second video on the theme “Afri9i.a”.

“To be African is a question that systematically generates a lot of others in my mind, what exactly does being African mean? Is it skin color or a state of mind? Is it an economic condition or a cultural heritage perpetually rediscovered both with surprise and delight? An economic choice or an immutable fate?, asks Mohcine Besri, president of the jury. For us Moroccans, I have the feeling that being African is historical amnesia of geographical evidence ”.
Ana Maghribia thus creates the opportunity to embody one’s own Africanness and make their voice resonate.
