Here at MCM, we love art and we love "le 7eme art" (the 7th art) which is a French expression to describe the cinema. You may remember our involvement in recent premieres for films in the US. This time, we are proud sponsors of the 10th edition of the Dubai International Film Festival.
Launched in 2004, the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) is the oldest film festival in the Gulf region. It is guided by the credo "Bridging Cultures. Meeting Minds." by showcasing short films and features in fiction and non-fiction narratives from around the world.
During the festival, we showed some of our MCM films on large screens both outside the venue and inside, for all guests to see.
You can watch both movies here:
The DIFF is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. It is a not-for-profit cultural event, presented and organised by Dubai Entertainment & Media Organization.
The festival's prestigious Muhr Emirati, Arab and AsiaAfrica Awards recognise outstanding talent from the region, presenting over US$575,000 in prize money to Muhr Award winners. The DIFF has also pioneered several industry initiatives within its Dubai Film Market designed to support and develop the Arab cinema industry. The Market runs concurrently with the festival and is attended annually by over 1,700 delegates from more than 90 countries.
