Organizers of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) announced that director David O. Russell's latest feature, American Hustle, was selected to be the closing film of the festival's tenth annual event, set to run from 6 to 14 December.

American Hustle, which stars a number of Hollywood A-listers including Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert de Niro, Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams, is one of the most highly anticipated films of the season.

Russell's previous two films, The Fighter (2010) and Silver Linings Playbook (2012), both received critical acclaim and experienced considerable box office success.

The film is based on the notorious FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and, like its two predecessors, it is expected to garner a number of Oscar nominations next year. 

The film's screening on the final night of the DIFF marks American Hustle's first appearance in any film festival.
