MZA announces plans to streamline its initiatives that support the film and television industry
Media Zone Authority – Abu Dhabi (MZA) announced plans to streamline its initiatives that support the film and television industry in order to strengthen its contribution to the Capital’s gross domestic product. Image Nation Abu Dhabi, an MZA entity, will take the lead in supporting and investing in film and television productions through its current initiatives, which emphasise active partnership and local projects. Also under the MZA banner, Abu Dhabi Film Commission (ADFC) will continue to offer the region’s only 30 per cent rebate to attract regional and international productions to the Emirate, while twofour54 will continue developing its world-class infrastructure and local talent pool to advance and sustain the industry. In order to unify the mechanisms of MZA support and investment in filmmaking, Image Nation Abu Dhabi’s initiatives will be the only platform through which MZA provides support for Emirati and Arab film productions. This support was previously split between Image Nation Abu Dhabi and SANAD Film Fund.
