The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) will launch film finance initiative The Dubai Investors Club at its upcoming 13th edition, running December 7-14.

Aimed at individuals looking to invest in the film industry, DIFF’s Dubai Film Market will host the bespoke event on December 8 and 9 at Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort of Dubai.
