ME NewsWire

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Tuesday, May 20th 2014

Dubai Film and TV Commission (DFTC) has released the first ‘Film Dubai Production Guide’ – a

comprehensive resource listing information about locations, talent and advice on filming and

producing in Dubai. DFTC has launched the guide at Cannes Film Festival, one of the most

prestigious events on the film calendar, where it is participating with other UAE film industry entities

to showcase what the UAE has to offer international filmmakers.

The directory is the first guide of its type in the emirate and forms part of DFTC’s ongoing strategy

to simplify and streamline film and TV production in the emirate. It will act as a one-stop resource for

information about filming in Dubai, connecting professionals from across every aspect of the

production process.

The guide contains in-depth information on all aspects of filming in Dubai including permissions

required, licensing and location details, as well as information to help production companies source

talent such as locally-based freelancers, technicians, and location scouts.  The guide will be

distributed across DFTC’s network of film professionals and industry stakeholders.

Speaking from Cannes, Jamal Al Sharif, Chairman of Dubai Film and TV Commission, commented:

“DFTC is committed to simplifying the filming process in Dubai, while also providing as much

exposure for local, regional and international filmmakers. By providing a one-stop resource of

information about where, how and who to film with in Dubai, the guide will help filmmakers to

connect easily with fellow professionals and assemble a world-class team for pre and post-

production requirements.”

Dubai has seen over 7,000 productions filmed in the emirate across a variety of genres and from all

corners of the globe. In 2013, DFTC facilitated productions including two major Bollywood

blockbusters, Happy New Year and Welcome Back, several Arabic TV series, and episodes of

MasterChef Australia. DFTC continues to attract international productions to Dubai in 2014,

including the world famous Bold and the Beautiful series, the German production, Cruise Into

Happiness and MasterChef Arabia.

The Film Dubai Production Guide was designed and produced by Content Advertising, the

professional advertising and marketing service provider. To obtain a copy of the guide, please visit
