Freida Pinto

Looks like India has more to celebrate than just the 5 films namely Rajan Khosa's Gattu, Musa Syeed's Valley of Saints, Ashim Ahluwalia's Miss Lovely, Anand Gandhi's Ship of Theseus and Hansal Mehta's Shahid that will be part of the Dubai International Film Festival. As India's most successful Hollywood export Freida Pinto will be seen gracing 9th International Dubai Film Festival as a coveted member of the jury

As a member of the jury, she will be judging films that are part of the Shorts and Emirati section - short films from the Arab, Emirati and Asian African countries making her the first Indian to be on the jury of the international short film contest as part of the festival. In addition to her duties as a juror, she has also been invited to attend a special gala hosted by Academy Award winning actor Colin Firth and his fashion entrepreneur wife Livia to support the annual 'One Night to Change Lives' charity event to benefit Oxfam and Dubai Cares on December 14th. Last year's event raised over USD 1 million, funding 14 regional schools and 10 schools in Pakistan.

The festival will kick start on Dec 9 and will come to a close on Dec 16. Other international stars expected include Cate Blanchett, Colin Firth, Rooney Mara, Kirsten Davis, Cuba Gooding Jr among many others.

When contacted, Freida's spokesperson confirmed Freida being part of the jury at DIFF.
