WHO IS … Nabil Ayouch ?

After a few years doing drama, three short films and some commercials, Nabil Ayouch directed "Mektoub", his first feature film in 1997, then “Ali Zaoua: Prince of the Streets”(2000), “A Minute of Sun Less” (2003) and “Whatever Lola Wants” (2007) produced by Pathé. His films have won many prizes around the world at various festivals and have been sold to many countries. “Mektoub" and "Ali Zaoua" represented Morocco at the Oscars in 1998 and 2001. Nabil Ayouch regularly returns to live shows since he designs and directs the closing event of the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland) and the opening of Temps du Maroc at the Château de Versailles. Over the last 10 years his company, Ali n ' Productions, has discovered and produced many young talents from the “Film Industry, Made in Morocco”, a pioneering experiment that explores genre cinema in the Arab world.

In 2012, his feature, God’s horses, was in official selection in Cannes.
