Algerian director wins ASBU Prize at PRIMED contests 2017

 

 The Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) participated in the 21st session of the Mediterranean documentary award (PRIMED 2017), hosted by the French city of Marseille from 19 to 24 November 2017.

 

The participation comes as part of the formal PRIMED partner status held by ASBU since 2013. Accordingly, ASBU sponsored one of the contest prizes and urged member corporations to participate intensively in the contest and take advantage of the important opportunity it provided. ASBU also chose one of PRIMED 2017 jury members on its behalf.
 
The ASBU Prize went this year to the Algerian documentary titled "Alger, la Mecque des Revolutionnaires 1962 - 1974" de Ben Salama.

PriMed 2017 has fulfilled all its promises in Marseille, thanks to an official selection from a record number of entries. PriMed is also known as “the festival of Mediterranean images", a showcase for the finest current affairs and documentary films about the Mediterranean.
