What’s Trending in Saudi Arabia in March 2020

Read Sea Film Festival Cancelled

3rd March 2020

I didn’t even know there was one-Red Sea Film Festival canceled just over two weeks away from its showings over coronavirus fears in Al Balad. This is the old district of Jeddah with all the traditional houses and wholesale markets.
