Welcome to the official blog of the Marrakech/Tribeca Filmmaker Exchange, a program created by the Tribeca Film Institute and the Marrakech International Film Festival Foundation in association with the Tribeca Film Festival. We are all extremely excited to be part of this new and innovative program, which encourages the professional development of promising young filmmakers, and fosters cultural and artistic understanding through collaboration between Morocco and America. The two-week program will take place in Marrakech, Morocco--the second week is concurrent with the Marrakech International Film Festival. In April, the Moroccan students are invited to the Tribeca Film Festival. We will be posting photographs, updates and first-hand accounts as the program gets into full swing between November 5-19, 2005. In this way we hope to keep friends, family and colleagues informed and engaged, and to create a record of the experiences, lessons, and surprises we meet along the way to making great film.
