The ceremony began with the traditional walk down the red carpet of movie icons under the acclaim of a loyal and fanatical audience delighted to meet their favorite stars. Among them was French director Agnès Varda, the incomparable American director James Gray, and the star of Egyptian cinema Yousra.

Moroccan cinema was not left out since a line-up of Moroccan celebrities had its share of applause prompted at their appearance on the red carpet: actress Asmaa Khamlichi, Saïd Bey, Aziz Daddas or actor and director Abdellah Ferkous, to name but a few.

After the arrival of jury president James Gray, surrounded by eight exceptional talents from the world of cinema, the evening continued in the grounds of the sumptuous Palais des Congrès.
