Dubai International Film Festival
December 9-16, 2009. DIFF aims at establishing itself as a major international festival, while continuing to act as a platform for showcasing excellence in Arab Cinema and simultaneously contributing to the development and growth of the regional industry and talent.
History:In 2004, the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) launched with its theme of ‘Bridging Cultures. Meeting Minds’. Going into its sixth year, DIFF is a not-for-profit cultural event, presented and organized by the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone Authority.
Reflecting Dubai’s cosmopolitan and multicultural character, the festival showcases a wide selection of features, shorts and documentaries from around the world.
DIFF introduced the Muhr Awards for Excellence in Cinema in 2006 with the aim of recognizing Arab filmmakers both regionally and internationally. The 2008 edition of DIFF introduced the categories of Asia/Africa to honor the craft of filmmakers from outside the Arab region. The new Muhr categories will recognize the perseverance and talent of Asian and African filmmakers in addition to the Arab professionals.

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!
This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.
When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.
Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!
I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
