"Noura," a Saudi film, screened at the Cannes Film Festival

The first Saudi film to appear in any of the festival's main categories was "Noura," which debuted in the "Un Certain Regard" category during the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival. It was filmed at AlUla, a historically and artistically significant city in northwest Saudi Arabia, and funded by the Red Sea Picture Foundation through its Red Sea Fund.

"Noura" has received international distribution and will have its premiere in Saudi Arabian and other countries' theaters on June 20, 2024.

The date is May 23, 2024, in Jeddah. Today, the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival featured the Saudi film "Noura" in the Un Certain Regard, also known as "a certain look." This marked the picture as the first Saudi film to feature on the official roster of the world's most prestigious film gathering. The exhibition was funded by the Red Sea Picture Foundation's Red Sea Fund. The Red Sea Fund provided funding for the film Noura, which was shot entirely in AlUla, a city in the northwest of the Kingdom that is known for its art and history. Saudis made up 40% of the crew, a testament to the industry's tremendous support. International distributors have distributed the film, and Saudi Arabian and other countries' theaters will host its premiere on June 20, 2024.
