Festival About DIFF Policies Connect
Dubai Film Market Dubai Distribution Programme About
In 2014, the Dubai Film Market joined forces with leading distribution companies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to provide Arab indie filmmakers with a platform that enables them to connect with larger audiences outside of the festivals’ circuits; thus creating the Dubai Distribution Programme (DDP).

The programme’s objective is to promote and showcase the best of Arab cinema productions each year with the support of the DDP distributors, who will commercially release select films in the MENA region.

The DFM believes in the high value and unique opportunities the programme has to offer to the filmmakers of the MENA region. Therefore, we are exploring growth opportunities for the programme by enhancing its offerings and expanding our network of partners to help achieve the goals of the programme and to contribute to the development of the film industry in the region.

Through the programme, each distributor will select at least one Arab title from DIFF’s 2017 film programme for theatrical release in the UAE and across the region.

Past titles selected include: DOLPHINS, ABOOD KANDAISHAN and CAIRO TIME.

The DDP partners of 2017 are:

Empire International

Front Row Filmed Entertainment/Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC).

Gulf Film

Iraqi Cinemas

Prime Pictures & Cinemacity

VOX Cinemas
