Al Marmoom Film In The Desert

detail image

‘Al Marmoom: Film in the Desert’ is a unique concept in the region that celebrates regional and global creative talents in the filmmaking industry. The festival provides a valuable platform to support this sector locally and regionally, presenting innovative prospects for its patrons to showcase their creativity, refine and develop their talents, and reach professionalism. It also aims to enhance Al Marmoom Desert’s position as a unique cultural tourism destination. It is a nature reserve that embraces many cultures and is rich in local heritage and culture. In addition to film screenings, the festival includes a series of interactive and engaging workshops targeting people of all ages and discussions with experts from across the region. A series of sessions for amateurs will also be offered for them to develop their knowledge of the film industry, in addition to panel discussions with experts and experienced global filmmakers. The 2022 edition of the festival focuses on the short-film format to reflect traditional Emirati arts, utilising narrative as a source of inspiration for its content and efficacy. This is what the ‘Al Marmoom Short-Film Competition,’ launched by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, is seeking to portray. The festival will celebrate the first three winning films in the competition. ‘Al Marmoom: Film in the Desert’ festival was launched for the first time from 4 to 7 March 2020 under the umbrella of Dubai Art Season, allowing community members to experience an innovative open-air cinema experience in the Marmoom Desert within a unique atmosphere while enjoying an authentic heritage experience and expanding their knowledge about the filmmaking sector from experts in this field.
