by Morocco’s Alaa Eddine Aljem, which was first unveiled in the Cannes Critics’ Week, will tonight open the 30th edition of FIDMarseille, which is set to unspool until 15 July, presenting an extremely diverse programme that, as always, displays a keen interest in artistic exploration. The menu boasts more than 125 films hailing from 35 countries, including 33 world and three international premieres across its four competitive sections. And this year, the Marseille International Film Festival will hand out an Honorary Grand Prix and will pay tribute to French filmmaker Bertrand Bonello as well as US photographer-director Sharon Lockhart, who will also be giving master classes.
