Dubai, 02 December 2017: The Dubai International Film Festival gears up to host another calendar of gala events curated by the Festival’s acclaimed ‘Gala Sponsors’. These high-brow events will take place every evening from 6-13 December, following the nightly gala screenings at the Madinat Arena.

The Gala Sponsors responsible for hosting these unmissable events include; ARN, Grey Goose, Vii, ITP (Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Condé Nast Traveller) and Bagatelle. These events will play host to some of the Festival’s wonderful guests and are a great opportunity to enjoy DIFF after hours.

Publishing giant ITP joins the esteemed ‘Gala Sponsors’ as one of the market leaders in UAE, with more than 80 weekly and monthly magazines. Their gala lineup will host the Esquire Man At His Best Awards, the annual event celebrating outstanding achievements of men (and a few women) across the Middle East over the past year. Joining the lineup, Harper's Bazaar Arabia will be hosting an exclusive cocktail party alongside its Best Dressed Studio on the DIFF red carpet each evening at the Madinat Jumeirah. Condé Nast Traveller completes the lineup with an event to celebrate the ‘Shorties’, a competition launched earlier this year for budding filmmakers in the region to showcase travel-inspired movies of 60 seconds or less.

Fort Island Jumeirah will also host The Arabian Radio Network (ARN), one of the region’s leading broadcast service providers, consisting of nine FM radio stations with over three million daily listeners. Their music and programmes reach a larger audience than any other radio network in the UAE, with a highly innovative approach that connects the Emirates’ diverse population.

Joining them is Grey Goose, renowned for their craftsmanship and distinct flavours, the brand is passionate about spirit making and has an unrivalled commitment to providing the highest possible quality.

Vii Dubai, the newest terrace bar and lounge located in the Conrad Hotel Sheikh Zayed Road will host an exclusive DIFF event. Tucked away on the seventh floor of the hotel, Vii Dubai is where the urban sky meets an unspoilt lush garden.

Bagatelle, a restaurant renowned the world over for its classically Parisian cuisine and the ultimate joie de vivre lifestyle, is the final destination for ‘Gala Sponsors’ at the 14th Edition of DIFF.

The 14th edition of DIFF will see films screened over eight days at the Madinat Jumeirah Arena, Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah and VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates and THE BEACH – opposite JBR. Cinemagoers will be able to buy tickets from the DIFF box office, which is now open and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates. Tickets will also be available from the Madinat Arena, Madinat Jumeirah from today and from the Madinat Theatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah on Wednesday, December 6th.
