Jeddah, Saudi Arabia18 November 2020   

The Red Sea International Film Festival is excited to announce digital screenings of its Tajreeb program. Originally chosen for the inaugural Red Sea Film Festival, Tajreeb aims to showcase the talent pool emerging in new Saudi cinema. 


Tajreeb is punk at its core; freeing filmmakers from any sense of constraint, allowing creatives the opportunity to do anything imaginable from behind the lens of the camera. Filmmakers accepted into the program find themselves surrounded by like-minded advocates of their craft and passions. Hailing from different regions of SAUDI ARABIA, these films are of different genres and lengths. 


The 11 selected films will screen online over the course of 2 weeks, running from the 18–30 November on the Red Sea Film Festival’s YouTube channel. Each film will be available for one week. 


The Tajreeb films will appear every other day from the 18th until the 30th of  November.
