Indian filmmaker's documentary to be screened in Gulf festival

The film by the UAE based filmmaker narrates the silent revolution led by Emirati women to dispel all misconceptions associated with the Hijab, taking it from a symbol of oppression to a medium of expression.

The third edition of the festival has selected eight compelling documentaries that will vie for the top honours in the in-competition documentary segment.The entries are from upcoming filmmakers in the UAE, Iraq and Kuwait, among others hand-picked from submissions by Gulf-based filmmakers and those inspired by life in the region.

A jury of filmmakers and cultural personalities will evaluate the entries for the top three prizes."Documentaries involve bold creativity and their ability to explore social and political issues continues to serve as the ideal outlet for inspiring directors to address important issues through the medium of cinema. The Gulf Film Festival is promoting talent through the documentary competition, which gained strong response from filmmakers across the world," said Masoud Amralla Al Ali, Festival Director.
