Carthage Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the region. Since its creation in 1966, it has always been the place to be; revealing and promoting all of the great names of African and Arab cinema. Images, sounds, colors, black and white, passionate and sometimes heated discussions about a film, stars and budding talents, the Arab world and the African continent uniting for sharing and understanding, and the rest of the world joining in this great celebration of cinema. Carthage Film Festival offers all of this to our guests and the Tunisian public. This 2008 session promises to be a reflection of the times. We will be able to experience stories through films from around the world. It will give us a chance to reflect on the necessary changes brought on by the surge of new technology in the audiovisual field. It will celebrate cinema, reflection, brotherhood and gathering together.
Welcome to all artists and cinema lovers.
