DIFF’s Dubai Film Market (DFM) to host a bespoke investors club aimed at individuals looking to invest in the film industry

Dubai, 20 October 2016: The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) today announced they will be launching The Dubai Investors Club at the Festival’s 13th edition which is set to run from December 7-14, 2016. The Dubai Investors Club is an exciting initiative designed to provide an opportunity for investors from the region to learn first-hand about the essentials of successful international film financing with internationally renowned experts and film leaders from around the world.

The programme is designed to offer up to 15 top-level investors the opportunity to gain the knowledge, tools and access required to invest in international films that can lead to both financial and critical success in this exciting global and dynamic business.

Key topics will include film financing, distribution and risk mitigation strategies through a series of short presentations, case studies, breakaway group discussions and one-to-one meetings. In addition a series of events will give investors the opportunity to network with industry practitioners in this exciting field as well as the opportunity to forge new business relations with fellow investors, key industry influencers and top producers.

Abdulhamid Juma, DIFF’s Chairman commented on the inaugural event: “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. Within the packed agenda, delegates will get incredible access to industry leaders, decision makers and experts who will be in a position to share tremendous knowledge about the future of independent film financing, emerging trends and the impact of new platforms on global film finance.”

The Dubai Investors Club will run on December 8 and 9 at the luxurious Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort of Dubai and is inclusive of an invite to DIFF’s prestigious Opening Night Gala Screening and After Party on the 7 December.
