US filmmaker to head 1st full-fledged film festival in Saudi Arabia

Oliver Stone is set to head Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Festival Jury.

US director Oliver Stone is set to lead debut edition of Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Festival Jury.

The event is the first full-fledged film festival in Saudi Arabia after the country removed a ban on public screenings at theaters in 2018.

According to a media report, the American director will preside over the International Competition jury at the first Red Sea International Film Festival to be held in Jeddah March 12-21.

This comes as some attendees voiced concern over the validity of the event in a country with such a controversial track record on human rights.

The festival opens with Saudi flick 'The Book of Sun' by the local Godus brothers.
