Saudi Film Festival Resturns on This Date

The eighth edition of the Saudi Film Festival will commence from June 2-9 at Ithra in Dhahran under the theme “poetic cinema,” a homage to what the festival calls “aesthetic symbolism and philosophical connotations that stimulate the creative imagination.”

The festival will pay showcase works of local talents and offer seminars, advanced training workshops and screenings of Palme d’Or films, considered the films with the highest merit at the Cannes Film Festival.

This year it will also highlight Chinese cinema by screening a selection of films from China and publishing a set of translated knowledge books to support the festival’s role in enriching Arab content in the fields of cinema and filmmaking.

Those interested in competing are invited to submit their entry via the Saudi Film Festival website through March 26.

 Nominees will have the opportunity to compete in seven categories in the feature film section; in four categories in the short film competition, including the Abdullah Al-Muhaisen award for a first film; and in six categories in the unexecuted script competition awards, including the Ghazi Al-Gosaibi Award for best screenplay for a Saudi novel.
