The Louvre Abu Dhabi has launched its very own film programme, Cinem’Art.
Cinema’Art is a programme showcasing silent films and cinematic experiments and even short films by younger directors in UAE.
Curated by artist and film enthusiast Hind Mezaina, the programme is aimed at bringing the museum’s global atmosphere to the screens
Been holding on to this news for a while, but it’s finally time to announce I’ve programmed my first film series for @LouvreAbuDhabi. Every Saturday between 23 June – 28 July. Includes classics, experimental, documentaries, shorts. Free to attend.

Inspiration originates from a number of places
The inspiration arose from some of the paintings featured in the museum which are Mughal in nature or are from daily scenes in China.
There are other experimental films that according to Mezaina, “Wouldn’t normally get a theatrical release here. They’re films that I think are important and interesting to see in the context of the museum.”
Cine’Art is scheduled to end on July 28, head over to the Louvre Abu Dhabi to enjoy some classic films.
