Dubai Film Festival screenings

Films to be shown at The Pavilion ahead of festival

The Knowledge

Dubai Film Festival (DIFF) may not kick off until Saturday December 8, but we’re pleased to hear the team is now hosting year-round arthouse screenings. Following a successful mini-series of music films screened last month at The Pavilion in Downtown, DIFF is flying in Iranian directors Maziar Miri and Morteza Farshbaf to host the next three-film run, back at The Pavilion from Monday September 24 to Wednesday 26. We can also tell you that the team are cooking up a Halloween-themed series to run in October, a selection of UK book-to-screen adaptations in November and a series of family films in December.
