The Red Sea International Film Festival hosted an in-conversation with acclaimed filmmaker Haifaa Al Mansour yesterday at the VOX Cinemas Al Balad 1. Mansour is not only one of the most significant names in the Saudi film industry, but has led the way in championing female empowerment across the region. Her debut feature multi award winning Wadjda was the first to ever be shot in the Kingdom, and celebrated in a special screening for Festival goers today. She has since gone on to direct numerous TV shows and films internationally, including Mary Shelley and Nappily Ever After, and continues to break ground in filmmaking.
