Will World Expo 2020 be in Dubai? Why yes, if filmmakers can help it!
Professional and amateur filmmakers are being urged to shoot and edit a short film in just 72 hours to show their support for Dubai's World Expo 2020 bid.
The ‘Filmi in 72 Hours’ project, which is open to all residents, includes a $5,000 grand prize.
Abdulaziz Al Najjar, executive director of Filmi, which is behind the project, said: “Innovative filmmakers will prove through their work why Dubai is the most eligible in hosting Expo 2020.” Filmi is due to release more details on Wednesday.
