All of this week there has been the 6th Muscat International Film Festival, which comes to a close this weekend.
The festival has been plagued by low-attendance all week. I'd say that this is probably something to do with the fact that it's incredibly difficult to find any information on the festival. The official website, www.muscatfilmfestival.org is actually very good, but as is seemingly par for the course here, the webmaster for the site has yet to master SEO. A Google search for "Muscat International Film Festival" does not return a link to the above mentioned official website until the 8th page of results. Which is quite frankly terrible! Who is still searching for a website on the 8th page of Google results?!
Anyway, there are three days left of movies, and then the closing ceremony on Saturday. You may see the schedule here. The movies start at 4pm, 6pm and 8pm and the main venue for the festival is the Al Bahja Cinema up past the Airport, however alternative venues are to be found at SQU, The Cultural Club and the College of Law - But having said that, there's only stuff left at the Al Bahja Cinema.
So if you are bored today, tomorrow or the day after in the afternoon or evening, why not check out the film festival and expand your horizons a little? :)
