Italian director Paolo Sorrentino will preside over the jury of the 19th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival (MIFF).

The jury will award the Golden Star to one of the 14 first and second features in the international competition, dedicated to the discovery of filmmakers around the world.

“The Marrakech Festival is for me the place where the dream of watching many films with Martin Scorsese came true as well as spending days talking about cinema with him, and other talented coworkers,” the Italian director said in an official statement.

“ To return this year as president of the jury is an honor. I believe that the theaters will fill up again and I am sure that many great films will be released soon,” he added.

The film festival will kick off on November 11 and will run until 19.
