The Dubai International Film Festival will host a new event dubbed "Rhythm and Reels" at its event taking place December 9 - 16 in the United Arab Emirates city. Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan will travel to the Emirate to perform following the premiere of "90 Millas" (90 Miles), directed by her record producer husband, Emilio Estefan. The three-day event during DIFF 2007 will bring "unusual and cutting-edge film" together with live musical performances. "90 Miles" is the distance between Cuba and Florida, and Estefan's film delves into the experience of Cuban musicians in exile in the United States, who are so close yet worlds away from their birthplace.
