LEBANON / 15th Beirut International Film Festival

beyrouth_festivalThe 15th Beirut International Film Festival opened on October 7th with a screening of Mark Osborne’s “The Little Prince”. The Festival continued until October 15th, closing with Davis Guggenheim’s “He Named Me Malala”.

80 films from 28 countries were on the programme, divided into four sections: two official competitions, one for Middle Eastern documentaries and the other for short films. There were also two out-of-competition categories: “Panorama” and “Public Space”.

However, on the opening day the festival organizers announced that Philippe Audi-Dor’s love story about a gay man and a woman, “Wasp” and Lara Lee’s film about the Western Sahara, “Life is Waiting”, could not be shown because they did not have a screening permit.
