Dubai International Film Festival to launch event at Madinat Jumeirah next month

The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) will be launching a new scheme next month, which will be aimed at private financers who are interested in investing in the film industry. Taking place at the 13th edition of the annual film festival, the event will be hosted by the Dubai Film Market.

The Dubai Investors Club will take place at the Madinat Jumeirah resort on 8th and 9th December, 2016, and the film festival will run from 7th to 14th December, 2016. Up to 15 senior investors will be invited to network with global film industry experts, so they can gain an insight into international film investment, as well as learn more about film financing, distribution, and risk mitigation plans.

Abdulhamid Juma, the Chairman of the Dubai International Film Festival, said:

“The Dubai Investors Club is a unique opportunity for investors to understand the film industry and successful film financing, whilst also enjoying the film festival and the city of Dubai.”

Dubai International Film Festival is the leading film festival in the Middle East, Africa and South and Central Asia. Every year, thousands of film-lovers from all over the world visit Dubai to watch the screenings and world premieres of creative film projects.

Over the last 13 years, the festival attracted numerous Hollywood superstars and actors and actresses from across U.S, Europe, Asia Africa and the Middle East. Famous people who frequent the event include Gerard Butler, George Clooney, Nicholas Cage, Orlando Bloom, Salma Hayek, Ben Affleck, Richard Gere, Colin Firth, HM Queen Noor of Jordan, Duraid Lahham, Daoud Abdul Sayed, and Hussein Fahmi.

The Madinat Jumeirah Resort is brand new multi-use complex in Dubai that has four luxury hotels: Jumeirah Al Qasr, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam, Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf hotels, and the Jumeirah Al Naseem. The development boasts two grand ballrooms, a 1,000-seat amphitheatre, the Madinat Arena, the full-service Talise Spa and Talise Fitness, and conference and banqueting facilities.

The Souk Madinat Jumeirah has a variety of dining outlets, cafes, bars and boutiques, plus the lively nightclub Pacha Ibiza Dubai. Located on a private beach in Dubai, the complex has been designed to resemble a traditional Arabian town, and it has transformed a stretch of coastline into a vibrant tourist destination.
