The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) has always been at the forefront of promoting local and international talent from the cinematic world. With an exciting line up of movies and celebrities this year, the eleventh edition of the festival promises to be bigger and better. Opening on the 10th of December with the highly sensational ‘The Theory of Everything’, a movie based on the life of celebrated astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, DIFF will be screening a total of 118 films from 48 countries this year. Free screenings are scheduled to be held at ‘The Beach’ opposite JBR, providing a much larger audience an opportunity to be a part of DIFF. Among some well-known names from Bollywood attending this year’s festival are John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal. The international premiere of the musical comedy 'Into the Woods' will be taking place on the closing night of the festival, bringing the curtains down on this week-long celebration of films and talent.
