Ok, to be honest - I work at DIFF. But why no reviews yet?! Even though I may be a bit biased, DIFF is a great event for Dubai and for the region's film industry. It is a public festival, so anyone can see movies - and there is usually at least one representative from the film in attendance! There is a huge industry component to DIFF as well, which makes it the most valuable stop in this region on the festival circuit! I come from a long history of working at film festivals, and there is nothing better to open your mind, educate and entertain. Go see a film or two next December! And then let us know what you think (good and/or bad) here afterwards!
