Nabil Ayouch is one of the most important filmmakers of his generation. Held in conjunction with the official selection of "Haut et fort" ("Casablanca Beats") at the FIFDH, this Masterclass is devoted to his bold, ever-changing work, which constantly explores and questions the margins of Moroccan society. His first feature film, "Mektoub", became the first film to represent Morocco at the Oscars in 1997. "Ali Zaoua, Prince of the Street" (2000), "Much Loved" (2016) and "Razzia" (2018) have also enjoyed successful careers internationally. Nabil Ayouch is also the founder of the Moroccan Coalition for Cultural Diversity (2003) and Meda Films Development (2006), which supports producers and scriptwriters South of the Mediterranean.
