DIFF collaborates with Beirut DC to promote independent filmmaking in the region
Spotlighting Middle Eastern talent
Beirut DC has been announced that it is to partner with the prestigious Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) once again. Beirut DC is a Lebanon-based organisation that aims to provide financial and post-production support for Arab filmmakers. DIFF's Enjaaz committee has chosen to select Syrian filmmaker Afraa Batous as this year recipient for her documentary film Skin.
Batous' documentary follows the personal journey through vivid memories of two of her close friends, Hussein and Soubhi who are living in politically and socially trying times. Throughout the film process Batous comes to the realisation that her friends collapse is a reflection of her own inner downfall.
The International Film Festival 2015 is set to take place from December 9–16 2015
