The 8th Dubai International Film Festival visit

I managed to make it to a blockbuster screening on the last day of the Festival at MoE and I am glad I was part of it. Thanks to a TECOM official who remembered to hand me a couple of tickets just in the nick of time.

The 8th Dubai International Film Festival (7th-14th Dec 2011), held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, concluded with a glittering award ceremony, where outstanding talent from the UAE and the Arab world, Asia and Africa were presented DIFF’s prestigious Muhr Awards.

The festival has so far screened (over the past 8 years) a vivid showcase of 171 films from 56 nations, hosted live music performances that attracted thousands of spectators, and celebrated the spirit of cultural solidarity through its central credo of ‘Bridging Cultures. Meeting Minds.’
