As Digital Studio went to press the Abu Dhabi Film Festival was in full swing, with Ali Mostafa’s latest feature film, From A to B, shown as the opening premiere. The festival had a total of seven world premieres, all of them from the Arab world, including Ali Mostafa’s film. “It was the first time in the festival’s history that we opened with an Emirati film and we are very proud about this landmark event,” said Ali Al Jabri, director of ADFF.

One company that has made serious inroads in helping to develop the wider ecosystem is Dubai-based MBC Group, which last year joined forces with California based Stargate Studios to set up a joint venture called Stargate Middle East. This company is home to one of the region’s biggest virtual studios, and the facility has already been used to create the sets for the historical drama Saraya Abedin.
