JCC 2021: 14 Tunisian films to feature in all competitions

Forty-five countries including 28 African and 17 Arab will take part in the 32nd edition of the Carthage Film Festival (JCC) to be held from October 30 to November 6, 2021, said director general of this edition Ridha Behi told a press conference held Tuesday to unveil the main lines of this edition.

This year’s edition will see the return of all the festival’s sections and its competitive selection after an absence last year due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The current edition will be marked by a selection attentive to new cinematographic trends in Africa and the Arab world, both ethically or ideologically and in terms of formal and aesthetic research. There will also be a special place to the reflection on the audiovisual landscape in the South and the impact of globalization and the digital revolution on the production and distribution of our films; an opening on a fringe of the Tunisian public, both in the regions and in prison and military institutions.

The 32nd edition of the JCC will focus on cinema of the North (Belgium) and of the South (Libya), without neglecting a look at the Francophonie and its contribution to the visibility of films from member countries of the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF).

Tunisia will be present in the various competitions through 14 films.
