James Gray and Marion Cotillard
Festival de Cannes James Gray and Marion Cotillard

Since 2007, the Marrakech Film Festival has held its annual masterclass series, featuring talks from brand-name auteurs as they reflect on their films and methods. This year, the festival, which runs from November 29-December 7, welcomes Bruno Dumont, James Gray, Abbas Kiarostami, Nicolas Winding Refn, and philosopher Régis Debray for the occasion.   

MFF also boasts a rather impressive jury, with Martin Scorsese presiding over the likes of Marion Cotillard, Patricia Clarkson, Park Chan-wook, Paolo Sorrentino, as noted in a previous announcement.
