This lecture will be followed by a drinks reception from 6.30pm - 8.00pm, in the Queen's Café.

Since the late 1990s, Moroccan cinema has emerged as one of the most dynamic national cinemas within Africa and the Arab world. Through an analysis of film festivals as alternative distribution networks, the (cultural) politics of international coproduction and the key contribution made by filmmakers from the Moroccan diaspora, this lecture will examine to what extent the rise of Moroccan ‘national’ cinema has been shaped by its transnational dimension.
