The 10th Dubai International Film Festival (6-14 Dec 2013) has announced the first titles in its AsiaAfrica section.
The three Asian films are TSUI Hark 徐克's action-fantasy Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon 狄仁杰之神都龍王, Leo ABAYA's comedy Instant Mommy (pictured) and LEE Sang-il 李相日's western remake Unforgiven 許されざる者.
Nashen MOODLEY, director of the AsiaAfrica programme, said: "This segment is about providing access to a truly global box office, uniting DIFF audiences with film lovers around the world."
Tsui received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the festival in 2008. Young Detective Dee is the prequel to Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame 狄仁杰之通天帝國 (2010), which closed the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
All three films are screening out of competition. The full line-up of films at the festival — including the AsiaAfrica competition titles — will be announced on 24 Nov 2013.
