Saudi Film Commission (SFC) has participated in the 79th edition of the Venice International Film Festival, which begins on August 31 and continues until September 10 in Italy.
The festival attracts a wide global audience to events including cinematic screenings and discussion sessions.
Through its participation in this festival, the film commission aims to strengthen its presence in international forums and enhance its relations with filmmakers worldwide through bilateral dialogues and meetings and promote its incentive program to attract international film productions to the Kingdom.
At the festival, the commission will present workshops to showcase the benefits of the Saudi incentive programme to international filmmakers and producers.
During its participation, the commission will highlight the film industry in the Kingdom and its successes.
In 2021, the commission announced its cash rebate programme, “Film Saudi”, which is now functional and open for applications via a dedicated platform for film productions.
Film productions planning to shoot either partially or fully in Saudi Arabia are invited to apply for the incentives.
A number of films from the Middle East have been announced as part of this year’s line-up.
