Among the effects of the recent Arab Spring has been a welcome focus on the emerging cinemas throughout the Arab world. New filmmakers, often educated outside the region and well aware of contemporary international film styles, have begun to create a new Arab cinema that fearlessly engages in a dialogue with their respective societies, broaching subjects unthinkable even a decade ago. Among the most important forces in this cinematic renaissance has been the Dubai International Film Festival, which offers a number of programs to develop and support new talents. We are pleased to present this series of recent feature films and shorts, all supported by DIFF, as an introduction to a new film movement about which we will surely be hearing much more in the years to come. Series programmed by Richard Peña and Isa Cucinotta.
