DFC Event
The Festival invites the selected director and the lead producer to attend the DFC and provides flight and hotel accommodation for the duration of the event.

Once the selection is made, the Dubai Film Market publication is created, including information on each of the projects and is circulated to the industry guests attending the DFC. The industry professionals select the project teams they wish to meet with during the one-to-one meetings. The DFC team creates a personalized schedule for both the project teams and the professionals attending the meetings.

The DFC officially opens in the evening of the 8th of December. It is followed on the second day by an early morning meeting between the DFC project teams and the DFC team of consultants. This is an informal gathering to introduce everyone to each other and discuss the schedule.

The 8th, 9th and 10th of December are devoted to individual 30 minute meetings with interested international industry professionals. At the end of the third day, having met with all the participating project teams, the jury awards the prizes.

In addition to the intensive one-to-one meetings, participants can also attend the workshops, networking sessions, case studies and panel discussions organized in the Forum of the Dubai Film Market
