In just a few weeks time, Dubai will be rolling out the red carpet for the Dubai International Film Festival! This year’s DIFF looks set to be bigger and better than ever, with Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise topping the guest list. The star of Mission Impossible will be in town for the world premiere of Ghost Protocol, which will be screened in the emirate eight days before international release. Dubai was recently chosen as the host city, beating stiff competition from other global cities to air the premiere of the much anticipated fourth installment of the Mission Impossible movies. Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, makes its big screen debut in the film, which sees Tom Cruise scaling the heights of the world’s tallest building.
The venue for DIFF will once again be the Madinat Jumeirah which is home to The First Group Theatre, and located in the heart of the ‘New Dubai’ area just minutes away from Tecom. Also lining up on the red carpet from the 7th-14th December will be fellow Ghost Protocol star, Simon Pegg, supermodel Helena Christensen and Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anil Kapoor. Hotels in Dubai are already gearing up for a busy week, with actors, directors, producers and the world’s press all set to descend on the city!
