Sharjah Art Foundation announces the programme for its annual film festival Sharjah Film Platform (SFP), returning this December to spotlight independent cinema and experimental filmmaking. The festival’s sixth edition features a diverse range of screenings, including nearly 40 short and feature-length international films competing for the Sharjah Film Platform Awards, as well as special screenings of notable works from and around the region.
Each film screening will be followed by an in-person Q&A session with the filmmaker. A series of talks and panel discussions, focused on ideas of solidarity and resistance, will be presented in parallel with the film screenings.
Running from 8 to 17 December 2023, SFP6 will take place at the Mirage City Cinema, the open-air theatre in Sharjah’s historical quarter and the Sharjah Institute of Theatrical Arts. This edition of SFP will also screen films at VOX Cinemas in City Centre Al Zahia, offering premium experiences to independent cinema enthusiasts in the region.
