Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Canary Islands, Morocco, and Siwa-Egypt are all presented in a very interesting, highly expressive and informative collection of films and documentaries.

The third edition of the New York Forum of Amazigh Film is not only celebrating the linguistic and cultural richness of Tamazight, but also offers an opportunity to see arts and language, both engaged in a great conversation on the transmission and resistance of the indigenous people within pluralistic societies.
