    The Gulf film Festival is DEFINITELY something everyone should go to! Apply for accreditation and attend films, panels and Gulf Nights! It really is a great way to connect with filmmakers of all kinds from the region! It is warm and casual. A very intimate and easy going environment to make new connections and friends. www.gulffilmfest.com Hope to see you there! April 11-17 - Festival City
