After a first edition held against all odds in 2014 with an international selection of movies, the second edition came with its load of international guests. The 2016 edition brought together an international movie selection, distinguished international guests and an international jury… Tripoli Film Festival has achieved in May 2016 its 3rd edition.
The Tripoli Film festival is a cinematic event conceived to ameliorate the image of the city with three main objectives:
• Enriching our local cultural environment in Tripoli
• Promoting the rich cultural heritage of Tripoli and its local artists.
• Branding and Marketing Tripoli and its region as a highly promising tourist destination.

For the first time in our last edition, the Forum for professionals was launched. The Forum made its first steps as a serious attempt to broaden the network of film making and networking in Lebanon. The Arab press positive coverage helped the Festival to position itself on the calendar of film festivals in the Arab world… Tripoli Film Festival is reaching its goals by giving Tripoli an open gate to reemerge and re-position as a cultural hub and a city of exchange, tolerance and arts, as it has always been.
In 2017, our 4th edition will honor a great Filmmaker from Lebanon, Georges Nasser our Festival Honorary President. A “Retrospective” covering his main works will be showcased during the festival days.

Each year edition brings new challenges on both networking and financial levels, and the most important one is keeping up with a high standard of professional organization. For this 4th edition of Tripoli Film Festival that will be held from April 27th till May 4th 2017, we are committed to keep the level of excellence that we were only able to reach with the support of our partners, sponsors, staff and volunteers.
It will be a great pleasure to welcome you in our city during the Festival, and we look forward for it.
