Arab cinema has made great strides over the past decade, with more and more films reaching audiences both at home and abroad, and we are proud to say that DIFF has been a crucial part of this growth. As we look towards our 12th year, we are more excited than ever to share these incredible achievements with audiences from the UAE and beyond. »
