The film festival is one of those events that is adored by the local population and brings a lot of attention to Dubai. It is well regarded for the people it is able to congregate. With the local film industry also starting to produce quality films and a lot of great content coming out, it has become important for this film festival to come to life. However, there have been murmurs of issues arising that have to be ironed out as soon as possible in order for things to thrive as they should in the long-term.
Doha Film Institute Not Participating
In the past, a lot of the funding and preparing was coming from the Doha Film Institute. They have decided to go in another direction instead of focusing on the film festival in Dubai. They want to be able to focus on things in their own area and that is where their funds are going to go at this point in time.
It is these details that are having the biggest role to play in the long-term.
Those who are aware of this state, the film festival will be able to make do with what they have, but it will not be the same as it was beforehand.
Local Support Driving The Film Festival
The film festival is nothing without proper prizes and funding being given to those who are going to be attending. This is why it is well regarded because a lot of local supporters of the industry have come in and tried to help out those who are going to be participating.
This has led to investment pouring in and that is where the value is of this festival. Those who are able to tap into this see the potential for growth.
The purpose of making sure this film festival continues to do well into the future has to do with what has taken place in America since 2001.
This film festival is able to encourage such growth and the development of bridges through film because that is one way to make sure the word is being spread about what Dubai is all about along with the East in general.
The message has been consistent and they have been looking to win over those who have the wrong image of what the East is all about. The Dubai Film Festival is one of those events that is cherished by film makers and has been around for a while because of the value it brings in general. Those who are able to reap the rewards state it gives them the platform to showcase their talents and continue to spread a message of peace and love as they have always wanted to while being able to do what they adore.
