Moroccan based representatives from the Dakhla Film Commission and the Rabat International Author Film Festival met with delegates from the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sports at the 76th Cannes Film Festival in 2023 to discuss potential collaboration in the film industry.

In a statement from the Dakhla Film Commission, the parties agreed to facilitate exchanges of visits and experience in the film domain in order to promote collaboration.

They also resolved to establish co-productions of films, strengthen cooperation in training initiatives, and encourage joint participation in film festivals. 

A visit by an Israeli film delegation to Morocco was also confirmed.

The primary focus will be producing joint film projects that highlight the Jewish cultural heritage of Morocco.

The meeting also highlighted Morocco's popularity as a film destination.

This is due to the country's infrastructure, including Atlas Film Studios which has hosted productions like The Mummy, and Gladiator, with Gladiator 2 also returning to film in Morocco.
