The Saudi Film Commission is participating in the 74th Berlin International Film Festival scheduled to be held from February 15 to 25 in Berlin.
The commission's participation aims to introduce the Kingdom's efforts to enhance the film industry, develop film production, and support local talents by encouraging them to participate in international festivals as part of the Kingdom's efforts to become a global destination for filmmaking.
The Saudi Film Commission's pavilion in the 74th Berlin International Film Festival will be in partnership with Film AlUla, Cultural Development Fund, NEOM, "Invest Saudi" Initiative, Red Sea International Film Festival, and the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra).
CEO of the Saudi Film Commission Eng. Abdullah Al-Eyyaf noted that the participation in the Berlin International Film Festival reflects the commission's commitment to supporting the film industry by encouraging worldwide producers to explore Saudi Arabia's inspiring filming locations.
"Our participation goes beyond marketing film production in the Kingdom, as it aims to present local talent on the global stage, to create opportunities for cultural exchange of knowledge, and present the outstanding local efforts and stories of the Saudi film industry,” he said.
