The movie which is produced and funded by the RSIFF is expected to be the breakthrough for the aspiring directors Hind Alfahhad, Jowaher Alamri, Noor Alameer, Sara Mesfer, and Fatima Al-Banawi, proving once again that the film festival is working as a platform to support young Saudi filmmakers.

The project is a huge platform for Saudi women in the movie industry and will debut at the inaugural festival in March 2020. To make things even more interesting, award-winning Palestinian filmmaker Suha Arraf is screenwriting supervisor on the portmanteau film.
