Western Sahara

Algeria - Western Sahara
Around 150 members of the British film industry gathered on Wednesday evening for the London launch of the 8th International Sahara Film Festival: the world’s remotest film festival. The event, held in 33 Portland Place - a key location for the Oscar winning King’s Speech – saw a host of actors, directors and film industry insiders come together to find out more about the festival which takes place in May in a refugee camp in the desert. Among the guests were film-directors Guillem Morales and Sara Olsson whose films will be among the 30 movies on this year’s festival programme.
