Dubai Distribution Programme
The Dubai Distribution Programme presents independent filmmakers with the opportunity to obtain distribution and showcase their films to a wider audience both here in the region and on the world stage.
Launched at the 11th edition, DIFF partnered with industry leaders Empire, Gulf Film, VOX Cinemas, Iraqi Cinemas and Front Row Filmed Entertainment, which participated alongside its business partner Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC). This collaboration involved each organization selecting and securing distribution for at least one Arab title from DIFF’s 2014 film programme.
Through the programme’s efforts five Middle East distributors agreed to acquire at least one Arab title from the DIFF line-up and will release it theatrically across the region with Dolphins, Abood Kandaishan and Cairo Time amongst the first titles selected. This initiative aims to identify and support the best Arab films featured at DIFF and facilitate their distribution within the region.
The DFM will be exploring growth opportunities and looking to expand the network of partners both locally and internationally in 2016.
