Dubai Studio City, Dubai International Film Festival And Dubai Film And TV Commission Lead The Gulf’s Participation At MIPTV
(6 April 2014)


Dubai's key players in the film and TV content market - Dubai Studio City (DSC), Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) and Dubai Film and TV Commission (DFTC) will be exhibiting at this year's MIPTV, the leading international content market and showcase for TV and digital entertainment, which takes place in Cannes from 7-10 April.
The participation of these three industry leaders will strengthen the visibility of Dubai as a production destination, and raise awareness around the facilities the Emirate offers. DSC offers state-of-the-art infrastructure, facilities and services including its world-class Sound Stages, which are the largest in the region and set Dubai apart as a premier global destination for production and broadcasting.

Since the inauguration of the Sound Stages in September 2013, two internationally-renowned productions have been filmed within the Stages including MasterChef Arabia, the first Arab MasterChef format with the largest MasterChef set, and The Cube, a leading international game show currently being aired on Dubai TV. Regional giant MBC also occupies one of the Sound Stages, from which O3 productions have produced cutting-edge content using their green screen and visual backlot technology.

Jamal Al Sharif, Managing Director of Dubai Studio City, and Chairman of Dubai Film and TV Commission commented; "Dubai has developed into a leading global production destination in recent years, home to the latest infrastructure and facilities, and has been the location of choice for the filming of major blockbusters including Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Happy New Year and many more. This is testament to Dubai's standing as a leading player in the production industry.

"MIPTV is a fantastic platform through which Dubai's thriving and rich film industry can be presented to a key global audience. This year's Festival comes at an exciting time for Dubai's film industry, which has already seen the production of a number of significant projects in 2013 such as MasterChef Arabia and the hotly anticipated Bollywood film Welcome Back - with more to be announced shortly - as well as the completion of two brand new sound stages at Dubai Studio City. This maturation of Dubai's film industry strengthens its position as a leading media hub and sets the tone for an exciting four days of discussions to be held during the Festival."

Samr Al Marzooqi, Dubai Film Market Manager of the Dubai International Film Festival added: "One of DIFF's key objectives is to raise the profile of Arab film on the world stage, and we have been thrilled to see an increased number of productions from the Middle East take part in internationally renowned cinematic events year on year. Our partnership with MIPTV, now in its third year, has been instrumental in giving filmmakers the opportunity of presenting their films on an international platform and seek international distribution."
