    Tangier Film Festival is a truly vibrant festival with a great selection of films including animation. There was ample opportunity to meet people from all over the world, exchange ideas and talk films. It was of course an honour to be a winner of best short fiction, but that aside, the personal attention given to each participant was really touching. Thank you Said and Sara.

  • Attending the Tangier International Film Festival was an extraordinary experience, especially with our film winning the Best Fiction Short prize. The festival's hospitality was remarkable, contributing greatly to the event's success. Being amongst such a high-quality selection of films was both an honour and a privilege. The Roxy cinema, with its old-school charm, added a special grandeur to the screenings. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity and the recognition our work received at this prestigious event.

    Thank you very much for selecting our film, 'Boushaib,' as part of the official competition of the fantastic special festival. Unfortunately, some family circumstances did not allow for personal attendance at the festival's events, but according to our film crew, the festival was splendid. It received admiration from all attendees, both nationally and internationally.
