The TFF Forum is a serious attempt to broaden the network of film making and networking in Lebanon among young filmmakers. This initiative is giving Tripoli a chance to re-emerge and re-position itself as a cultural hub and a city of exchange, tolerance and arts, as it always was.

Attendees had the chance to meet international directors and producers; guests of the Festival, along with our Jury Members, International Festival representatives, the press and representatives of funding institutions and production houses.
