No, I haven't been planning for this post to be my comeback after a long abstinence, but the fact is,
Tripoli is blooming with events of all sorts, and I found it dearly necessary to shed light on them and share them among the ones I know. As I had stated in my Facebook posts last night, all events are listed in increasing chronological order by start date.

“The Tripoli Film Festival – Lebanon is a cinematic event conceived as an initiative to ameliorate the image of the city with three main objectives:
