Here's everything we know about the Saudi Film Festival 2024

 The festival is happening at Ithra…

Lights, camera, action. The Saudi Film Festival 2024 is starting this weekend, and if you’re at all into the film industry, this is one event you should have on your radar.

The festival will be starting on Thursday May 2 until Thursday May 9 and will be organized by the Saudi Cinema Association and is supported by the Film Commission of the Ministry of Culture

At its core, the Saudi Film Festival is an event on the annual Saudi calendar by filmmakers for filmmakers. The event offers a collection of cultural and enrichment programs including seminars and advanced training workshops.

To make things more interesting, the event will also host competitions to develop screenplays and film quality.

Expanding to include a wider range of Arab and international productions, the Saudi Film Festival also serves as a platform for production companies, producers and filmmakers to support their projects in the production market.

That’s not all though. A selection of books will also be translated and published as part of a series that aims to enrich the Arab library in the genres of filmmaking and cinema literature.
