AL Houaz Province Festival of Environmental Film Project

Environmental festivals are becoming increasingly popular, and many NGOs that want to raise environmental awareness are using them to spread environmental conservation messages and raise awareness about the importance of solving environmental issues.

In collaboration with different partners, the AFCD Foundation organized ‘AL Houaz Province Festival of Environmental Film,’ third edition, under the theme of “Audiovisual at the Service of the Environment” from April 23 to 25, 2020, in Aït Ourir, with the participation of young directors representing cinema and environmental clubs as well as civil society associations in our province.

Throughout this festival and in parallel with the competition for beginner film makers, we attended screenings and debates of professional environmental films in the presence of their directors, workshops on sustainable development, and screenings of films by young people. We concluded discussions on the state of the environment in the Ait Ourir region, led by executives from the Marrakech regional environmental observatory, and with the active participation of citizens.
