DUBAI STU­DIO CITY LAUNCHES CINEMENA

INI­TIA­TIVE WILL IN­CLUDE WORK­SHOPS, EVENTS AND AWARDS FOR CON­TENT CRE­ATION COM­MU­NITY

Digital Studio - - NEWS UPDATE -

Dubai Stu­dio City has an­nounced the launch of CineMENA, plat­form to nur­ture lo­cal tal­ent in the field. The ini­tia­tive aims to as­sist con­tent cre­ators in en­hanc­ing their skills through an an­nual agenda of events, in­clud­ing work­shops, mas­ter­classes and train­ing ses­sions by renowned in­dus­try in­flu­encers, ac­tors and film­mak­ers.

Set to kick off in Fe­bru­ary 2019, CineMENA seeks to pro­vide net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for mem­bers and stake­hold­ers of the MENA re­gion’s cre­ative com­mu­nity. The ini­tia­tive will com­prise mul­ti­ple ac­ti­va­tions, an ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and trends, out­door film screen­ings, and thought ses­sions fo­cused on all as­pects of the art and craft of con­tent cre­ation. CineMENA will also in­tro­duce a new com­pe­ti­tion to recog­nise lo­cal and re­gional tal­ent, fea­tur­ing four cat­e­gories – Best Short Film, Best Short Doc­u­men­tary, Best Mu­sic Video, and Best Film.

Ma­jed Al Suwaidi, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Dubai Stu­dio City, said: “In line with our core pri­or­ity of nur­tur­ing a cre­ative com­mu­nity through iden­ti­fy­ing, sup­port­ing and hon­ing tal­ent in the me­dia and con­tent cre­ation in­dus­try, we are proud to an­nounce the launch of CineMENA.”

He added: “Lo­cal con­tent from the MENA re­gion has a rel­a­tively low rep­re­sen­ta­tion on a global level. We are keen for CineMENA to change the sta­tus quo through ac­tively pro­mot­ing lo­cally pro­duced con­tent in both Ara­bic and English. We as­pire to bring to­gether pas­sion­ate in­di­vid­u­als to learn, gen­er­ate con­tent, and net­work with other mem­bers of the cre­ative com­mu­nity.”
