Guests invited to attend the event include Jamel Debbouze and Jacques Perrin, as well as Arthur Delaire, Frédéric Schoendoerffer, Fatsah Bouyahmed, Mohamed Hamidi, Baya Medhaffar, Soria Zeroual, and Tewfik Jallab.

In addition to the inclusion of The Cow by Mohamed Hamidi, the festival will also present Fatima by Philippe Faucon (which won the Best Film Award at the 2016 Cesar Awards), Un plus une, by Claude Lelouch, As I Open My Eyes by Leyla Bouzid, Seasons by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, Fast Convoy by Frédéric Schoendoerffer, and Paris-Willouby by Quentin Reynaud and Arthur Delaire.
