In late 2013, filmmaker Jocelyne Saab collaborated with the city's Cultural Resistance Association to spearhead the launch of the Tripoli International Film Festival. With screening venues in Tripoli and Beirut and a guest list of international and local filmmakers, TIFF (since renamed The Cultural Resistance International Film Festival) has many of the public components of an international film festival.Last spring filmmaker Elias Khlat spearheaded the creation of a second Tripoli Film Festival.
