The Lebanese Film Festival (LFF) held in Beirut, was created in 2001 by Pierre Sarraf and NadimTabet who run it during 10 years. Since 2011, the festival is organized jointly by né à Beyrouth Films (a Beirut based production house) and Bande à Part, (a non-trading company) whose director Sabyl Ghoussoub also directed the festival for the past 4 years. This year, they have the pleasure to announce the appointment of Wafa’a Celine Halawi as Director of the next 2 editions of the Lebanese Film Festival. The goal of this festival is to offer a privileged tribune for Lebanese directors in order to help them show their work and meet with their audience, but also promote and encourage production initiatives in Lebanon. This year, the festival carries on with its four prizes: best fiction, best documentary, best first film and best experimental film.
