Saudia Cargo and Cainiao boast a robust collaboration, with a history that spans several years. The latest agreement reinforces this long-standing relationship by giving precedence to specific Saudia Cargo freighter flights originating from Hong Kong and bound for Riyadh and Liege.

This milestone comes after a year of engagement with the local community, which included more than 180 Saudi, regional and international films screened across thematic programs, graduation screenings, festivals and competitions. The celebration unfolds with an exclusive, free exhibition titled “Nawartuna: The Illuminating Legacy of Asmahan and Farid Al-Atrash” (Dec. 4 — Jan. 11, 2024) and a screening of a meticulously restored Egyptian classic, “Victory of Youth” (1941).

Asmahan and Al-Atrash made an indelible mark on both the music and film industry, particularly in the Arab world. Moreover, an edition of Aflamna, an ongoing, regular series showcasing the best in upcoming Saudi filmmaking talent, takes place on Dec. 21, featuring new films and discussions with directors, producers and actors.

We offer our sincere thanks to the Al-Atrash family for their support.” Considered Saudi Arabia’s first permanent independent cinema and audio-visual center, Hayy Cinema expands the definition of cinema as a meeting point to watch, learn, exchange, discover and research; the complex includes a 168-seat theater,  a 30-seat community screening room, a multimedia library and an educational exhibition space.
