Italian director Paolo Sorrentino will preside over the main jury for the 19th Marrakech International Film Festival (November 11-19).

Screening in official competition will be 14 first or second films which compete for the Étoile d’Or award for best film.

The Hand Of God director previously served as a member of Marrakech’s jury in 2013. 

This is the first time the festival will run since the pandemic with the Étoile d’Or having last been won in 2019 by both Yixiang Zhai’s Mosaic Portrait and Nicolás Rincón Gille’s Valley Of Souls.
