    TUNIS - A total of 170 films from 40 different countries in three new sections - ''Carthage Talks'', ''Digital Carthage'' and ''Diasporas'', dedicated to exile and migration - are the ingredients of the 30th edition of the Carthage Film Festival in Tunisia. The JCC will open in Tunis on October 26 and close on November 2 with an award ceremony in the three main categories - feature films, documentaries and debut movies.
    This edition of the festival, which is entirely dedicated to the Tunisian filmmaker who has recently died and a previous director of the JCC, Nejib Ayed, will open with the latest work by Nouri Bouzid Les épouvantails, which won an award at the Venice Film Festival.
    The event, which will include screenings in prisons and in different regions of the country, promotes Arab and African cinema and focuses on independent films from the south, ''defending authors that are far from conventional channels'' according to its art advisor, Tarek ben Chaabéne.
