We are pleased to announce that ZUMEFF 2013 will take place April 30-May 1, 2013 at the Zayed University Abu Dhabi Campus.
Submissions begin January 1, 2013.
Last year’s festival included some 50 films from around the Middle East, from Turkey to Tunisia. We are proud that the Grand Prize winner of ZUMEFF 2012, The Last Hour, has since gone on to win in in Tehran Film Festival and Baghdad Film Festival:) and it was selected in Carthage Film Festival!
Here’s to an even better ZUMEFF 2013 and the great young filmmakers of the region.
We look forward to receiving your films for 2013.
What an incredible year for student films. The preliminary student-faculty had a tough time choosing from the nearly 100 submissions you had from across the Middle East and North Africa. Great stories of identity searching, childhood innocence and deception, and the daily battle for peace and dignity for the disabled, victims of violence, and those fighting their own demons. All the films playing are top quality, and the filmmakers and their schools should be so proud of them. We hope to see you at our brand new campus for the screenings. Come early and stay all day—snacks will be on site, as well as some surprises. And one of our sponsors, Make Up Forever, will have a booth up, ready to give advice when you need to stretch your legs. Stayed tuned for more updates, getting to know our panel of professional judges, and some of the filmmakers.
