16 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

SYDNEY -- The Dubai International Film Festival will open Dec. 11 with the world premiere of Albert Brooks' Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World, organizers said Wednesday. The film, which is distributed by Warner Independent Pictures, will come under the festival's key program, Operation Cultural Bridge, which aims to increase understanding between Muslim and Western cultures. "It is a great milestone and honor for us to host the world premiere of 'Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World, '" festival director Neil Stephenson said. "Laughter has no accent and no boundaries and is one of the fastest and most effective ways of bringing people together. We were so impressed with Albert's wonderful motivations in wanting to make this movie as they go straight to the heart of what we are trying to achieve in Dubai. Dubai, after all, is in the Muslim world, and so we knew that this film belonged in our festival." »
