A bit of Dubai International Film Festival history


If you are going to visit Dubai, you should go to the Dubai International Film Festival that is held at the famous place for tourists, Madinat Jumeirah which sponsors the festival itself. 


In Dubai, you will enjoy impressive buildings, beautiful beaches, and showplaces in this amazing city! You can also visit various events, including the Dubai International Film Festival that is held at the famous place for tourists, Madinat Jumeirah which sponsors the festival itself. 

The History of Dubai Film Festival 

The history of the Dubai Film Festival started more than 10 years ago. In 2004, when it was launched, many people had skeptical reviews about it. By those times, in the whole world, there were about 6000 festivals, and the festival in Dubai became just one more. But the DIFF survived the competition and thrived with work and dedication and also became a popular event for many tourists in Dubai.


The main specialization of the festival is the best films from the whole world, mostly from Asia, Africa, and countries of the Middle East. Currently, there are about 150-280 films that participate in the festival, and 50% of them are movies from the countries of the Middle East. Lately, many Arabian films are appearing at the festival too. 

Except for the main program and competition, DIFF is a great platform for a successful business. The main goal of the festival is to develop a partnership between foreign and Arabian professionals in the film industry. The Dubai Film Connection is a market that operates in the festival. Currently, the result of this partnership is 71 completed movies and about 6 movies are on the final point. Nowadays, about 57 Arabian movies have already got financial support thanks to the Dubai festival. The festival has built a massive multicultural business platform that connects producers, finansists, directors, and distributors from many countries worldwide. They came to Dubai to share experiences, knowledge, and resources. It means the Dubai International Film Festival helps to develop the international partnership in the sphere of cinema and art.
