Golden Globe Winner and IWC Schaffhausen brand ambassador Emily Blunt presented the IWC Filmmaker Award to Abdullah Boushahri for his film “The Water”.

For the third consecutive year, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC, ‘Oficial Sponsor’ and ‘Festival-Time’ Partner of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF), collaborated with the Festival to recognize one talented filmmaker from the region with the esteemed award. Held at the One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai, the “For the Love of Cinema” awards ceremony was a prestigious gala held to honour the winner whose film was chosen by a jury of internationally renowned film industry experts such as actress Emily Blunt and film director Marc Forster.

The star-studded event counted a private concert by American musician Aloe Blacc among its highlights.

“For a third successive year, we have received excellent submissions from the region and are as always greatly impressed with the way GCC filmmakers tell their stories. It gives us great pleasure and honour to be able to contribute towards supporting local talent and developing creativity, thus boosting the quality of filmmaking in the region as a whole,” commented Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

Speaking at the event, Emily Blunt said: “What a great experience being part of the IWC Filmmaker Award jury has been. The region is a treasure chest of stories and thus the submissions were brilliant. I am proud to participate with such a noble initiative that supports the ambitions and aspirations of the region’s filmmakers. It was a real task picking out the winner from the entries received which each had the ability to touch the hearts and minds of audiences the world over.”
