(8 October 2012)
DIFF invites supporter of the arts insider access to December festival and year-round events


 

Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) is inviting supporters of the Festival to support their 9th annual festival by signing up for the hottest film package in town. The “Friends of the Festival” initiative was launched to support DIFF’s mission to foster cultural communication, provide access to world-class cinema and create a platform for emerging Arab filmmakers. “Friends of the Festival” packages are now available for the upcoming 9th edition of DIFF running from 9th – 16th December, 2012.

Since its debut in 2004, DIFF has made huge strides in supporting filmmakers, growing audiences and introducing and promoting Arab film and talent to the world. The “Friends of the Festival” programme is reaching out to arts and culture supporters, philanthropists and visionary business leaders to contribute to the development of a film environment in which innovation, opportunity and creativity can thrive.

With the festival just a matter of weeks away, the “Friends of the Festival” programme is rolling out the red carpet for those who share an extraordinary love of film and the desire to support a bigger and better Festival. With exclusive access to extraordinary events, tickets to hotly anticipated films and an opportunity to rub shoulders with the stars there’s no better way to dazzle your friends, family and clients this December. These exclusive passes also have the opportunity to bypass the ticket queues as they offer the opportunity to select films one day prior to the box office opening.

Shivani Pandya, Managing Director of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) explains: “DIFF once again promises to deliver a vibrant and diverse programme this year promoting the Arab world’s rich culture and distinct identity on a word stage. As we continue to develop a film industry that in the future we hope will launch the careers of some of the incredible talent who come through our “script to screen” support programmes we are reaching out to the fans of the festival to enjoy our “Friends of the Festival” initiative to help us support and accelerate the future of film. Without the encouragement of our community the success over the past 9 years wouldn’t have been possible and we are extremely grateful.
