2019 Edition

Destination… Morocco

The North African country with its deserts and mountains protagonist of the festival 2019

After having explored territories and cultures in every other continent, with increasing success of public, the section “Destination…” looks for the first time at Africa and the other side of the Mediterranean


In the collective imagination, Morocco is not immediately associated with the mountains, but between the ocean and the desert rise the Rif range to the north and especially the Atlas to the south, a mountain system that stretches for 2,500 km and whose Berber name (Adrar n Dern, “the Mountain of the Mountains”) explains well what consideration it has in local cultures. Three Atlas peaks exceed 4,000 meters: the highest, the Jbel Toubkal (“the peak from which you can see everything”) with its 4,167 meters is the highest mountain in North Africa, and every year attracts mountaineers and tourists from around the world. There are also several ski areas on the Atlas in winter: Ifrane, with its sloping roofed houses, is nicknamed “Little Switzerland”.

After the extraordinary public success of the projects dedicated in recent editions to Chile, Iceland and Japan, with many sold out screenings, Morocco will be the host country of the 67. Trento Film Festival: “Destination… Morocco” will focus on this African country with ancient history, on whose territory very different civilizations have intertwined, leaving their mark on a cultural mosaic kaleidoscopic, constantly changing. The magic of Morocco has fascinated travellers for centuries, with its enchanted landscapes, contrasting and changing colors.

“Destination… Morocco” is realized in collaboration with the Embassy in Italy of the Kingdom of Morocco and with the contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto.
