DIFF  |  Festival  |  Sponsors 
DIFF is an annual not-for-profit event and since the inaugural Festival has received generous contributions and valuable support from its sponsors who have made it possible for DIFF to grow in strength, size and stature.

Our principal sponsors Dubai Duty Free, Emirates Airline and Madinat Jumeirah have incredible passion to see DIFF continue to expand as a definitive platform for Arab film, a goal that has driven DIFF since its inception. Their invaluable support has enabled the festival to grow year on year and has helped the region’s filmmaking community flourish.
