Film festival gets ISO certification

The Dubai International Film Festival has achieved the honour of being the only festival in the world to receive the globally accepted recognition of being certified with ISO 9001:2000 – quality management system applicable to the management and operation of the festival.

Diff has been awarded this by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance, an accredited third-party registrar of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

Abdulhamid Juma, Chairman of Diff, said: "Programming, administration and logistics and industry initiatives are the three pillars that contribute to the success of a film festival. Due to the dynamic nature of the industry, the various departments that make a festival end up working as individual units. The ISO certification will help bring these departments together through detailed systems and processes, ensuring a more synchronised and efficient Festival.
