Dubai Studio City

Imagine a place where you can shoot a film from start to finish in one location. From financing to casting to pre-production to filming in exotic locations to editing to sound recording to visual animation to processing to distribution and finally to the premiere night. Imagine a place like Dubai Studio City.

With the dawn of the digital era and rising number of TV channels, the future of the broadcast industry looks extremely bright. Consequently, a new crop of independent broadcast boutiques has emerged, to provide design, visual effects, and music composition services. These companies can fulfil their true potential in a virtually untapped region from Dubai Studio City.

Designed to accelerate the growth of the broadcast, film, television and music production industries, Dubai Studio City will be an ultra-modern facility integrating every component under one roof. Spread across 22 million sq.ft., it will include production, post-production, equipment rental, business centre and satellite facilities among others

It will also have residential areas, hotels, an entertainment centre, film schools and training institutes. This unique combination of world-class infrastructure, qualified professionals and unique networking environment will make it the ideal location for creative people to unleash their imagination.

The metropolis of Dubai is fast rising as a global entertainment destination with its media-friendly initiatives and cosmopolitan lifestyle. In a short span of four years, the Dubai Media City free zone has firmly established itself as the media hub of the region. The opportunity to work in such a dynamic networking environment has brought together over 1000 companies, including CNN, BBC and Sony, making it a vibrant mix of talent and resources.

Dubai has a grand vision for the future and the resources to make that vision a reality. Time and again, Dubai has made the impossible possible and it is now all set to take the world by storm with its new projects.
