I hope you are all doing well.
So as I mentionned in a previous discussion here, next week Tunis will be hosting the
Carthage Film Festival in its 29th edition (oldest film festival in the African
As a way to document and emphasize on the importance of such manifestations, our User
Group is organizing an editathon on the 6th of November to update, write and translate
Wikipedia articles about Cinema in Tunisia and Africa in general. You can see the complete
list of suggested articles to work on here.
I hope you can all participate remotely, or physically if you are in Tunis. We need to
have the biggest number of languages possible. Any interested, check the meta page and add
your name in the participants list.
Also, and thanks to the support of the media department of the Carthage Film Festival, we
managed to get Journalist badges to participate in the opening and closing ceremony of the
festival, the projections and the press conferences. The goal behind this is to take
photos of the artists and producers who will be present in the festival, to upload them on
Commons and integrate them eventually in the proper Wikipedia articles.
So regarding this point, I need some help with identifying the international artists. Once
I upload the photos on Commons, I will share the Category with you, so that you can
identify the artists you recognize by changing the photo's name with their name.
Technically speaking, it will be very difficult for me to memorize all names and correct
spelling when I take the photos.
I will appreciate it if people who can help with this point share their interest here, so
that later, I can communicate with them directly.
Also, any remarks or suggestions are more than welcome.
Feel free to reach to me for any question.
Looking foward to hearing from you.
