It will mark Scorsese’s fifth time attending Marrakech Film Festival. He presided over the festival’s jury in 2013.
“I’m so happy to be on my way back to Morocco, a country I feel very close to, and to be taking part in another edition of the Marrakech Film Festival,” said Scorsese, who filmed “The Last Temptation of Christ” and “Kundun” in Morocco.
