Filmed in Oman, The Falconer is set to be released in the Middle East via Front Row

Dubai-based Front Row Filmed Entertainment has acquired all Middle East and North Africa rights to Oman-based drama The Falconer, co-directed by Adam Sjöberg and co-starring Seanne Winslow. The film is considered the first international feature film to be shot entirely in the Sultanate.

“Falconer” is a story of two teenagers from different worlds, one a villager named Tariq, the other a white westerner named Cai, who are best friends. Together they steal and sell zoo animals to raise money for the local boy’s sister to pay for a divorce from an abusive marriage.

Pic is produced by the directors and David Jacobson (“The Butler”), who sold the film direct to Front Row. Filmed in English and Arabic and starring newcomers Rami Zahar, Rupert Fennessy and Noor Al Huda, Falconer had its world premiere at the Heartland International Film Festival in Indianapolis, where it won the Best Premiere award.

The film has screened at more than twenty other US and international festivals, where it has won numerous awards. The film was released in US theaters in October 2022 via Gravitas Ventures and currently has a 100% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“‘The Falconer’ is a magical coming-of-age story that manages to be visually stunning while addressing serious wildlife smuggling issues,” Front Row CEO Gianluca Chakra said in a statement. “We are very excited to be working with Adam, Seanne and David and can’t wait for the release in the MENA region,” he added. Front Row is planning an outing for the picture in the first quarter of 2023.

“After an incredible US festival run, we are thrilled to bring ‘The Falconer’ to MENA with the ideal partners in Gianluca and Front Row Entertainment,” said Jacobson.

“We are deeply inspired by their commitment to innovative storytelling and can’t wait to share this film with countries across the region,” continued the executive director.
