The Scene Club - Dubai

Yesterday, there was a film screening of The Scene Club,which is a monthly film club that highlights the best of international independent cinema.

I was aware about this club and also a member of it, last couple of years. It was founded in 2007 by Emirtati director Nayla Al Khaja,
I haven't chance to join any of their film screening till yesterday.

This time, I managed to arrange and catch the event. August's film was Like Father Like Son Japanese movie which has 18 awards from international festivals, such as 2013 Cannes Jury Price.  Best film at 2013 Asia Pacific Film Festival, Audience reward of Sao Paulo International Film Festival ect...

According to information given by Nayla Al Khaja before the screening; Steven Spielberg is interested to get re-make rights of the film. We may see Hollywood version of this film in coming years.

Normally, they have Q&N session at the end of the movie with director or producer but this time, no-one could join the screening due to the distance.
the venue was fully packed. I hope I can also catch next screenings.

  1. That sounds like a good idea. And inevitably many films from other parts of the world get remade by Hollywood.
