FRIENDS OF THE FESTIVAL PROGRAMME

Noted by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the top 15 film festivals in the world to visit, the Dubai International Film Festival has earned its spot as an exciting destination to watch the most anticipated films of the year, a platform to discover the best in Arab cinema and attend lavish post-screening parties.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Blunt, Cate Blanchett, Tom Cruise, Omar Sharif, Colin Farrell, George Clooney, Salma Hayek, Colin Firth, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Morgan Freeman, Richard Gere, and Ben Affleck are just a handful of the A-listers who’ve made an appearance in years past.

Here’s your chance to experience the Dubai International Film Festival as a VIP!

DIFF’s Friends of the festival program' was designed to engage the UAE’s cinephiles by providing a platform for them to become supporters of the arts.

When you choose to become a DIFF Supporter, a Patron, Platinum Partner, a Gold Circle member or you Silver member you can enjoy unique privileges at the festival.

Get special access to screenings, be a part of the opening and closing ceremony, interact with some of the leading industry professionals at the Dubai Film Market, attend exclusive conferences, which are otherwise restricted to the general audience.

Expect nothing short of a red carpet experience at every venue. Add to that, a celebration of exclusivity and cinema at the UAE’s most anticipated event.

The 14th edition of DIFF will run from December 6-13, 2017.
