SANAD Co-production Meetings
24th - 26th October 2014, Emirates Palace


The SANAD Co-production Meetings were established in 2013 to further aid the grantees of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival’s film fund SANAD in partnering with entities that can contribute to the completion of their film projects.  Each year 18-23 projects in the development and post-production phases are granted funding by SANAD and are invited to attend the meetings held in Abu Dhabi in October during the film festival.  

Industry professionals who are interested in co-producing, selling or distributing feature film and documentary projects from the Middle East are invited to register their attendance to the SANAD Co-production Meetings. Successful applicants will be sent the confirmed list of projects approximately one month before the festival.  One-to-one meetings are scheduled during the three day event between participants and SANAD grantees after an intense period of scheduling, ensuring projects are partnered with the right companies and vice versa.  All participants will receive their meeting schedule 2-3 days before the festival.

If you would like to register to participate as an industry professional in the SANAD Co-production Meetings please email
