With the slogan of ‘Bridging Cultures. Meeting Minds’ the DIFF is one of Kipp’s favourite festivals. Launched in 2004, the folks at DIFF had enough time to deal with teething problems. One of the most interesting byproducts of the DIFF is the Dubai Film Market-the business centre of the festival. The Dubai Film Market is “dedicated to Arab cinema and is attended annually by over 1,500 industry professionals.” Some of the hotshots who have attended are – Kipp, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Anil Kapoor. The upcoming DIFF will happen from December 9 to 16, 2012. Check out http://www.dubaifilmfest.com/index.php/en/ for more.
