The event's Cinema of the World sidebar also includes Clio Barnard's "The Selfish Giant" and Asghar Farhadi's "The Past."
LONDON – Canadian director Jason Reitman's Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, British writer-director Clio Barnard's The Selfish Giant and award-winning Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi's The Past, the follow-up to the Oscar-winning success A Separation, are among the titles chosen to unspool at the Dubai International Film Festival's Cinema of the World sidebar in December.
Joining the trio in the high-profile international section will be filmmaker Ivan Sen's contemporary thriller Mystery Road, which he directed, wrote, shot, edited and scored, and which stars Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving and Ryan Kwanten.
Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty and Belgium's Marion Hansel's Tenderness will also play in the section.
DIFF artistic director Masoud Amralla Al Ali said: "The Cinema of the World section is a rich and diverse program ranging from international art house to Hollywood films from both established and upcoming talent that will captivate audiences this year at DIFF. We look forward to announcing more films that promise to connect DIFF audiences to the widest choice of world cinema this December."
DIFF will celebrate its 10th year when it runs Dec. 6-14.
