Rabat is not only the capital of Morocco but also the film metropolis of the country. Terrorist attacks devastated the country for the first time in May 2003. Bomb attacks in Casablanca killed more than forty people, including the eleven assassins. The direction that film and society in Morocco will take depends on the course of King Mohammed VI. Only six feature films appeared in Morocco under native direction during the French colonial period. The film industry in Morocco was never nationalized after the country achieved national independence in 1956. The number of Moroccan feature film productions has increased considerably since 1980. With this was the establishment of a national film fund (Fonds de l'Aide à la Production Cinématographique) that can subsidize up to fifty percent of a film's budget.
