We were honoured and moved that the Tripoli Film Festival dedicated their 5th edition to Randa Chahal's work, daughter of the city of Tripoli. The festival has been working hard to promote and support the film industry in the northern city.

Two movies were screened during the festival : the award-wining The Kite, Silver Lion at the venise Festival in 2003 and the documentary Souha, surviving hell, their were both preceded by the Short Lebanon, long ago. 
At the closing ceremony, the Festival director Elias Khlatt and the president of the Jury, Ghassan Salhab gave a honorary award to Randa Chahal's daughter Nour.
