Another great success in Boston for hosting—on September 23rd at Tufts University—the ninth annual of the Amazigh Film Festival for the second year in a row, film festival dedicated to Amazigh films and documentaries made by Amazigh and international filmmakers.
The festival was hosted by the Amazigh Cultural Network in America (A.C.N.A.) in collaboration with the Tazzla Institute for Cultural Diversity. Sponsored by the the BMCE Bank Foundation.
The festival featured a wide variety of movies, short-films and documentaries that spanned various cultural, societal, historical, political and artistic themes. The audience was well receptive and activrely engaged, and the intermission allowed people from a round-the-world diversity to intermingle, share and connect.
The festival ended with a live panel discussion spiced up with interesting interventions from the audience, as well as a vivid live performance featuring famous tunes from Rif and Kabyle land.
Special thanks to the organizers, coordinators, host at Tufts University and to all of the talented and ambitious Amazigh and international filmmakers that were featured in this years festival including Kamal Hachkar, Anita lewton, Izza Genini, Mohamed Bouzaggou , Dounia Benjelloun Mezian and Tahar Houchi. We’re well on our way to make this a standard festival going forward with even bigger exposures and impact in the years to come.
