The Dubai International Film Festival once again featured movie screens supplied by ShowTex Middle East as well as specialized stage fabrics for the astounding opening show.
Films shown In the Madinat Arena were viewed on two ShowTex FrontScreen Supermat Perforato projection screens measuring 8.3 m x 20 m. The Madinat Souk Theater presented new films on two 5.2 m x 11.5 m projection screens, hung on a truss with specially designed hooks. The side masking for the movie screens was achieved with a ShowTrack Rail controlled separately for the right and left side. For masking on the top and bottom of the film screens ShowTex made use of the EasyDrape pipe and drape mounting system.
The screening theater also made use of the sound transparent velvet curtains mounted on ShowTrack. The unique black drapes only let sound through, but block much of the light making it the ideal fabric for movie screen borders. In combination with the perforated projection screens, both sound and viewing quality are optimized.
For the opening ceremony of the event, ShowTex installed a Hispeed 8000 curtain motion system measuring 18 m wide and over 400 m² of grey Gobelin Tulle sharkstooth scrim.
