Here Is All You Need to Know About Saudi’s Latest Independent Cinema

Saudi Arabia’s film industry is entering a new era marked by bold new initiatives that are putting the Kingdom on the map as a key film destination in the region. Additionally, the leading gulf-nation inaugurated the Red Sea Film Festival a few weeks ago, which attracted filmmakers from the region as well as the world. The festival, which was an astounding success, promoted Saudi films to viewers from all over the world, drawing the attention of a wide range of film buffs from across the world.

Saudi Arabia has also launched ‘Wadi Cinema,’ which will showcase films by filmmakers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to Saudi audiences to promote cinema in The Kingdom. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see an extraordinary partnership between Saudi movie company Muvi Cinemas and Telfaz11. Moreover, Wadi Cinema will present a spectacular pop-up experience at the Diriyah Biennale, a cultural zone located in the industrial district of Diriyah, a town located just outside of Riyadh.

Sultan Al-Hokair, Muvi’s CEO, expressed his excitement for this exciting collaboration, stating, “This brand new partnership will captivate film enthusiasts all over the country.”

The ideal way to see a movie is in a theatre, where viewers can escape their daily lives to witness a filmmaker’s ideas come to life. We sought to find novel and inventive ways to convey the experience of independent and critically acclaimed films from major film festivals to people across the kingdom.
