Interview: Artistic Director Christoph Terhechte | 2018 Marrakech Intl. Film Festival

It’s so incredibly difficult to press on the pause button for any major event, especially one that is dipped in gold type prestige. The 2018 Marrakech Intl. Film Festival edition began it’s rejuvenation process when it landed Artistic Director Christoph Terhechte — the topper was the programmer for the Berlin Film Festival’s Forum section. With a new screening venue at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent, a strong competition section, better outreach program within the community there is an air of enthusiasm for the festival for the imminent near future. I got the chance to speak to Christoph Terhechte about how much of an undertaking it was for his first edition, we discussed the comp selection, alluring the 11th Continent section, and the Atlas Workshops.
