In 2014, we launched the first editon of Children's International Film Festival in the UAE. The festival was announced in September 2013 with the launch of UAE's first Inter-School Filmmaking Competition. With over 40 schools participating across 5 emirates, we had more than 500 young filmmakers working towards producing their first films!
By January 2014, we had received more than 200 international film entries from around 35 countries; and by February 2014 we had 60 plus student film entries.
Our festival was held from 24th April to 2nd May 2014, with the Awards Ceremony taking place on 3rd May, 2014. Sift through the various pages to read more and view some pictures from CIFF 2014.
