Dubai International Film Festival

Since its inception in 2004, DIFF has gone from strength to strength, helping to develop a thriving film culture within the region, provide greater opportunities for Arab filmmakers, offer an invaluable cultural benefit to the people of Dubai and its principal mandate of celebrating excellence in cinema and using it as a medium to promote open dialogue between cultures and nations.

The films, crafted in over 40 languages, will populate DIFF’s Arab and Emirati competitions, and its out-of-competition segments dedicated to children, the Arab world, virtual reality and cinema from around the globe. With Q&As and special appearances from a stellar lineup of talent and the spotlight firmly on Oscar hopefuls as well as Arab talent, the stage is for another eight-day celebration of the very best in cinema.

DIFF festival goers will be able to see films screened across the city at the Madinat Jumeirah Arena, Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah and VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates and the popular and free-to-attend Beach Screenings – opposite JBR.

DIFF’s highly contested Muhr competition for feature fiction and non-fiction; and short films originating from the United Arab Emirates and the Arab world will showcase over 60 of the latest and best films from established and promising new talent. The competition, which has been an integral part of the festival since 2006, will continue to nurture and reward exceptional Arab talent and cinema from the region.
