The Dubai International Film Festival announced today that the outdoor screenings return to THE BEACH this December. Film Fans will be treated to an exciting selection of screenings in a magnificent complimentary event beneath the stars for eight nights at the upbeat lifestyle destination by Meraas.
In a celebration of all things cinematic, the films this year will be showing at THE BEACH, opposite JBR. THE BEACH is a new addition to the retail and F&B landscape offering first-time experiences of an outdoor lifestyle venue where urban meets the sea. Minimalistic in design and detailed with architectural definition, THE BEACH is styled with intent to attract people who are sociable, enthusiastic and relaxed. THE BEACH is one of Dubai’s most exciting developments catering to both local residents and global visitors, spanning up to 320,000 square feet. Uniquely set against a scenic backdrop of the Arabian Sea, the destination provides an ensemble of options for community engagement including a host of outdoor activities, fitness facilities, retail stores, Cineplex, restaurants, ‘The Market’ an outdoor artisanal bazaar, seaside leisure and adventure with ‘Sea Breeze’, as well as ‘Splash Pad’, a play-area for kids – plentiful choices for the ultimate day out.
On the opening night of the DIFF, film fans will be able to watch all the action live as it unfolds from the red carpet before nestling into your giant beanbag and enjoying a highly anticipated film curated by DIFF’s programmers, with entry on a first-come, first-served basis.
The free screenings will run from 9th December, 2015 at THE BEACH, opposite JBR, and the schedule of films will be announced in the coming weeks.
