THE FESTIVAL OF FESTIVALS – ZIFF 2016
In this veritable program of ZIFF we invite festivals or film schools or media organs to curate a 3-hour package of films that best describe who they are to show at the festival. After the showing they get 45 minutes to talk to the audience and the press about themselves.
This year we welcome Valletta Film Festival that will be organizing an event that would bring together small-nations to discuss their film industries. The plan is to make of this an annual event that would be open to the film professionals of countries with a population under 3 million.
The Beijing Film Academy will be presenting a short discussion about the New Chinese Cinema focusing on training and opportunities in China and its focus on Africa.
The Sayed University of Dubai will also make a presentation to visitors as will the UNO office in Zanzibar.
