Cinémathèque (Movie Library) Afrique of the Institut Français takes pleasure in making a contribution by organizing the 50th anniversary celebration of Cinema Days in Carthage (JCC) to take place in Tunis on October 28-November 5, 2016.
For this special anniversary edition, Tunisian filmmaker Mohamed Challouf has put together a special program comprised of 18 feature films and 19 short films from African and Arab countries.
Mauritanian filmmaker Abderramhane Sissako will be President of the Jury for the feature film competition, bringing together filmmakers from Senegal, Diana Gaye; Italy, Giovanna Taviani; Egypt, Khaled Youssef; France,
Marc Irmer; Algeria, Amina Chouikh; and Tunisia, Abd el Halim Massaoudi.
A unique jury will select the best films in two categories, short films and Carthage Ciné-promesse.
The ‘‘First Work’’ category, called the ‘‘Tahar Chériaa Prize’’, regroups 13 films with a first jury led by filmmaker Sofian Al Fani (Tunisia) and composed by Paul Badoudjian (Lebanon), Farida Belyazid (Morocco), Philippe Faucon and Mireille Fanon-Mendès-France (France).
With the contribution of the Cinémathèque Afrique of the Institut français, a series of tributes will be paid to several African filmmakers, including Djibril Diop Mambéty from Senegal and Idrissa Ouédraogo from Burkina Faso. The Cinémathèque Afrique will also screen distinguished films, Tanit awards from Carthage Film Festivals, restored films, and films from the FEPACI retrospective.
Also on the Festival’s agenda are Days of Memory, to begin with a symposium giving thought to saving cinema heritage in Southern countries (‘‘Endangered Cinema Heritage’’), to continue with tributes and screenings of a large number of films.
