Marrakech International Film Festival Locks Down Lineup; 'Immigrant' and Terry Gilliam's Latest Set to Screen

The 13th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival (Nov. 29 – Dec. 7) has locked in the full slate of films set to play at the event. Over 110 films are set to screen, with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hindi romantic drama “Ram-Leela” serving as the opening night film, and Lukas Moodysson’s Swedish coming-of-age film “We Are the Best!” closing the festival.

Other highlights include James Gray’s “The Immigrant,” Jeremy Saulnier’s acclaimed thriller “Blue Ruin,” Kore-Eda Hirokazu’s Cannes-winner “Like Father Like Son,” and Terry Gilliam’s latest mind-bender “The Zero Theorem.”
