Through the "Conversation with" series, the festival proposes a new concept of meetings with the big names of world cinema, the organizers said, stressing that after attending a series of Masterclasses during previous editions, the public, media and film professionals are now invited to a free conversation, a privileged moment of exchange and interaction with leading figures in world cinema.

Seven celebrities confirmed their participation in this "important" event of the 17th edition of the FIFM, according to the same source.

These are American director Martin Scorsese, legendary actor Robert De Niro, Mexican director, novelist and producer Guillermo Del Toro, French filmmaker and artist, Agnes Varda, Egyptian filmmaker Yousry Nasrallah, Romanian director, scriptwriter and producer, Cristian Mungiu, as well as general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival and director of the Institut Lumière de Lyon, Thierry Frémaux.

"I’m so happy to be on my way back to Morocco, a country I feel very close to, and to be taking part in another edition of the Marrakech Film Festival. I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends, making some new ones, and seeing some movies at a film festival that will always be close to my heart," said Martin Scorsese.
