Emirati Announces new Film Project at Cannes

Emirati filmmaker Ali F. Mostafa, who directed 2009’s City of Life and has been crowned the Best Emirati Filmmaker at the Dubai International Film Festival, will start his next film project in October. Mostafa will be teaming up with Egyptian writer Mohamed Hefzy, who produced Tahrir 2011, award-winning Lebanese producer Paul Baboudjian and the Saudi Arabian producer who has worked on Hollywood films Arbitrage and At Any Price, Mohammed Al Turki.
The announcement of the film, called A to B, was made as the group is in Frances for the Cannes Film Festival, which will end on May 26. Mostafa said he had been searching for the “right follow up project” to City of Life. “I think A to B will appeal to audiences internationally as well as across the Arab region. It’s very exciting to be working with Mohamed Hefzy, who wrote the script and to also collaborate with Paul Baboudjian. The support of Mohammed Al Turki as well has been great added value to the project itself.”
