Celebrities Auction Off Clothes at Dubai Film Festival

Itís a week full of stars as Dubai holds its international film festival and although this year they made room for indie films that doesn't mean they didn't invite Hollywood to enjoy the festivities. This year as an added bonus celebrities auctioned the clothes off their backs.

It's difficult to walk around Dubai without being in constant awe of one's surroundings. The modern city is nothing short of incredible. Built from the ground up within the last 40 years, a main argument it is using to win a World Expo bid in 2020, Dubai seems to boast the biggest and best in the world whether it's fountains, skyscrapers or gold-plated flag poles.

And when it comes to all things grand, the Dubai International Film Festival is no exception. Last year's festival was taken over by Hollywood with the premiere of Mission: Impossible 4, a film complete with Tom Cruise scaling Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. This year's expertly-run festival gave the indies room to breathe, focusing on the massive treasure trove of new talent from the Middle East, Africa, and beyond.
