The discussion will be held on Friday, December 8 at 02:00 PM for one hour as part of the Forum, one of the programmes of the Dubai Film Market (DFM) that is held within the 14th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF).

Along with Hefzy, the panelists are Bertrand Faivre (Le Bureau), Producer Jonathan Deckter (Voltage Pictures) and Peter Trinh, Managing Director of International and Independent Film at ICM Partners.
