Abu Dhabi Film Festival 2011
Don’t miss the 2011 Abu Dhabi Film Festival, October 13-22!
Where can you find Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries about the Egyptian uprising and why women love shoes, a restored version of the first sci-fi movie and 3-D films about ancient caves and modern dance?
In its fifth year, the Abu Dhabi Film Festival features all this and much more! Spanning 10 days, ADFF screens nearly 200 films from 45 countries, representing a fascinating collection of intelligent, creative movies.
New this year, ADFF launches outdoor screenings at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, offering audiences the special chance to enjoy spectacular films within sight of Abu Dhabi landmarks like the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The Festival also returns to Abu Dhabi Theater (Qasr Al Amwaj) and VOX Cinemas at Marina Mall, where ADFF introduces fantastic “On Location” activities and prize draws.
