Film amateurs and the creative community in the Kingdom can enjoy the Saudi Film Festival in its extra special virtual edition from September 1 to September 6. Spearheaded by Ithra in collaboration with the Film Authority of the Saudi Ministry of Culture, the anticipated festival will feature exceptional local films, interviews with filmmakers as well as workshops.
This week, the festival's committee handpicked this year's jury members to select the film to share their valuable input with the filmmakers and the audience.
In its sixth edition, movie fanatics are invited to vote online for their favorite films and hold virtual discussions. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the organizing team found it best to take the festival online to safeguard attendees' health and make sure everyone can attend.
Dating back to 2008, the Saudi Film Festival has always celebrated Saudi films and has given local filmmakers the opportunity to reach regional global audiences.
