2013 Festival

CINEMA FOR THE BLIND


CINEMA FOR THE BLIND AND PARTIALLY SIGHTED AUDIENCE

Following the previous years’ success of the screenings for the blind and partially sighted audience, the Marrakech International Film Festival (FIFM) continues to program in this year’s edition new audio-described feature films including the new Moroccan feature film adapted in 2012 by the FIFM Foundation to this new technique: this film is The Lost Beauty (La Beauté éparpillée – Oud El Ward) by Lahcen Zinoun.
For this 2007 film, the Foundation invited two young Moroccan presenters, Aziza Laâyouni and Mohamed Ammora, to be the audiodescription narrators of the film.
Following the example of previous editions, the blind and partially sighted guests of the Festival coming from all around the Kingdom are entirely taken care of by the Foundation, thus allowing them to attend the screenings with audio-description of the seven selected films.
The Alaouite Organisation for the Protection of the Blind in Morocco offers the Braille leafl ets in three languages (Arabic, French & English) listing the synopsis of the audio-described films.
