The Red Sea International Film Festival (RedSeaIFF), which is set to take place from 1-10 December in Jeddah, nestled on the eastern shore of the Red Sea, has announced its first slate of films in the ground-breaking section ‘New Cinema/New Saudi' for its second edition. The impressive line-up features 11 world premieres and 5 international premieres.
Following on from the success of the inaugural edition, the Festival will welcome filmmakers, talent, media, and audiences present for a 10-day celebration of over 120 of the best films from around the world, alongside a packed program of industry and public events.
Program Manager at the RedSeaIFF Mohyee Qari said: “Last year, the Festival was applauded for showcasing a wealth of captivating shorts from new voices. I’m thrilled to announce the second edition’s line-up from Saudi filmmakers is once again a showcase of the countries talent who are taking creative risks and forging new pathways. Each film is so different but interesting characters and compelling storytelling are the common denominators across the selection. The film industry continues to accelerate at a considerable pace and the filmmakers in this section truly represent the future of filmmaking in the Kingdom.”
