Just one week ago #ZUMEFF2019 took to the stage here in Dubai. Many thanks to everyone who attended ZUMEFF and congratulations to all the winners.

We would like to thank the Youth Hub for being such gracious and accommodating hosts for this year’s festival. In addition, ZUMEFF could not happen without the support of our amazing sponsors who helped bring this year’s festival to life.

Finally, a film festival needs a varied cross-section of submissions and professional judges to review the entries. This year’s selection of work did not disappoint and the judges did an amazing job reviewing a wide cross-section of submissions. Many thanks to all for their time and dedication.

See you next year for #ZUMEFF2020!

Thats a Wrap!

That’s a wrap… for now!

Many thanks to everyone involved in #ZUMEFF2019 from the filmmakers to the speakers and the presenters at both the masterclasses and workshops, the event organizers and everyone in between. 

Please enjoy this wonderful video taken over the past 2 days by the very talented Fatma Eid Salem (@f.swedish) a 4th Year Media Production and Storytelling (MPS) student within the College of Communication and Media Sciences (CCMS) at Zayed University.
