Outdoor Cinema at the 7th Dubai International Film Festival
Since 2004 the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) is the leading film festival in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Many well-known filmmakers as well as independent directors from Asia and Africa were participating in the competition.
The DIFF presents outdoor movies every year. The movies are shown on “the Walk”, the famous boardwalk in front of the Jumeirah Beach Residence. Various movie highlights are projected on a giant inflatable screen (AIRSCREEN) at night. People can also enjoy live music and dancing performances in front of the 66ft. by 33 ft. mobile screen.
Apart from that the DIFF honoured the famous American actor Sean Penn with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Festival’s chairman Adulhamid Juma said that Penn is a role model for the whole youth of Dubai due to his humanitarian work.
