Five animations created by UAE students as part of a workshop held at the Dubai International Film Festival 2008 will be screened next month at the 12th edition of the Auburn International Film Festival for Children and Young Adults in Australia.
The short animation films, created by students from Al Ittihad Private School, Rashid School for Boys, Westminster School, International School of Arts and Sciences, Emirates International School and Dubai College, will be featured as part of the out-of-competition segment at the festival that will be held in Sydney from September 21 to 25.
Masoud Amralla Al Ali, artistic director at DIFF called it an occasion of pride for the emirate to have helped “children as young as eight years old discover their talent”.
“For a festival like Auburn to select these films proves that there are no barriers to creativity, and we hope this will inspire children across the UAE to follow their dreams," he commented.
Dubai International Film Festival 2009 will be held from December 9 -16.
