Bringing together emerging and established filmmakers from the UK and the UAE

The British Council in partnership with Image Nation Abu Dhabi will organise a special week-long event that brings together emerging and established filmmakers from the UK and the UAE. 

The festival will consist of a film industry symposium held in Abu Dhabi followed by a touring short-film festival across the Emirates.

Building on the success of local initiatives such as Image Nation Abu Dhabi’s Arab Film Studio, this film festival seeks to:

  • showcase excellence in contemporary Emirati and British film
  • provide a forum for professional exchange
  • inspire the next generation of film-makers.

The film festival is presented by Image Nation Abu Dhabi and the British Council, with support from the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development.
