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 next editions brought together international film selections, distinguished international guests and international juries… In 2019, a Panorama section has been added to our main competition’ selection. Tripoli Film Festival has achieved in June 2019 its 6th 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 fourth time in our last edition, the Forum for professionals was organized. The Forum made its fourth step as a serious attempt to broaden the network of film making and networking in Lebanon. Along the 2 afternoons dedicated to Round Tables covering all cinema industry issues, specialized workshops and Masterclasses are also organized during the Forum. In 2017, a pitching platform was added to the Forum with key investors, producers and distributors from Lebanon and the Arab world. Since 2016, many Lebanese films were supported through the TFF Forum and its Platform.

The national and regional press coverage helped the Festival again to position on the calendar of film festivals in the Arab world… Tripoli Film Festival is reaching its goals by giving Tripoli once again 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.

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 7th edition of Tripoli Film Festival that has been postponed from 2020 to June 3rd till June 8th 2021 due to the COVID 19 situation, 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.
