“From scene to screen” was the theme chosen for this
year. The festival honored Antoine and Latifeh Moultaka,
artists who established the outstanding performing arts
tradition in Lebanon. That made a craft and marked the
history of the Lebanese theater with their signature.
For the occasion, “Waynon” the movie was launched;
a collective work of a writer, seven NDU film graduates
as directors, and the best cast in town, on a subject
that will live as long as humanity is still alive. Antoine
and Latifeh Moultaka were part of the main cast.
The workshops organized around the theme were
on screenwriting with Dean of FAMU Film School of
Pragues Pavel Jech, and on acting “From Shakespeare
to Screen” with actor Hakeem Kae Kazim.
