The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia decided to postpone the International Red Sea Film Festival, which was scheduled to start on March 12, for fear of the outbreak of the new Corona virus, without specifying another date for it.
The statement added: “We extend to all filmmakers and fans with deep regret this difficult decision. However, we must all confront the spread of the Corona virus emerging (Covid-19) and not fail to support and meet the efforts and measures imposed in response to curbing the spread of the virus globally.”
He continued: “We know how everyone is looking forward to the opening festival session, and we extend our sincere thanks and gratitude for your support and standing at our side. We promise you that the festival will take place at a later time, and we confirm our continued commitment to filmmakers, producers, our partners and our public, as we will announce the new dates for the 2020 session as soon as possible. We will do everything in our power to provide you with the latest developments. ”
The inaugural edition of the Red Sea International Film Festival was supposed to take place from 12 to 21 March 2020 in historic Jeddah, and would adopt the slogan “changing the scenario.”
