Beirut | - August 25, 2012, 12h49
The Lebanese Film Festival celebrates this year its tenth edition, which will be held from August 23 to August 26 in cinema Metropolis Empire Sofil, Ashrafieh.
27 films, including 16 in competition, will be presented.

They will be judged by a jury of four members: Christopher Donner, writer and journalist at "Le Monde", Ibrahim Maalouf, trumpeter, Suzanne Khardalian, filmmaker and journalist, Ziad Antar, photographer and filmmaker. The Jury will grant the best fiction award presented by The International Organization of la Francophonie, the best documentary award by the Unesco Lebanon- Ministry of Culture, as well as the best first film awarded by Total Lebanon.

The other 11 films, which are off selection represent a variety of Lebanese experimental films but also films of foreign directors that address the Lebanese theme or that were filmed in Lebanon.

We will also present different events accompanying the selections.

In addition, we will be pleased to inaugurate the Festival, after the opening ceremony, with a unique live cinema of Ibrahim Maalouf on an animation of Hans Richter.

During the festival, we will hold multiple meetings and debates to make the festival a platform for discussions around personalities of the cultural scene. Moreover, big names will gravitate around the Festival. Nadine Labaki will exclusively meet her public and Ghassan Salhab, will honor us by giving us a free access to the "Black Panthers". We are also proud to welcome "Cultures of Resistance" and some members of "The Suffering Grasses" team, a documentary by Iara Lee, based on the Arab Spring that sheds the light on refugee camps.

To close to the Festival we will have the pleasure of presenting a new film, "Children of Belle Ville" by Asghar Farhadi; a film that will pave the road for a new section of films that will be created next year.
