FICMEC 5 is now done, and we would like to thank you all for your support and interest and passion for amateur cinema!

First and foremost, we would like to thank our sponsors, without which FICMEC would not have been possible.

Also, our prestigious international jury members, who in spite of loving every film, managed what they called “an impossible task” and still chose winners.
Mrs Farida Benlyazid, Morrocan film-maker.
Mr. Daniel Leuwers, French poet and critic.
Mr. Max Kestner, Danish documentary director.
Mr. Pierre Abi Saab, Lebanese Journalist and art critic.
And especially the president of the Jury, Mrs Rima Frangieh, prominent Lebanese personality who has always aimed to promote Lebanon’s cultural aspect with various projects, like Ehdeniyyat Festival (that includes Cinemaiyyat).
And now on to the winners:
