Productions houses are responsible for training the next generation of GCC filmmakers in order to develop their skills and enable them to compete in the global market, according to the CEO of Image Nation Abu Dhabi Michael Garin.

In an opinion piece looking at the year ahead, Garin said the scaling back of platforms such as Dubai International Film Festival makes it all the more important for productions houses to play a larger role in training local filmmakers and ultimately creating a sustainable sector.

“As with any profession, becoming a successful filmmaker is a journey of many years. With professional platforms like Dubai International Film Festival scaling back drastically, Image Nation and our peers have an even more critical role to play in preparing the next generation of local content creators.”

“We are charged with building a sustainable industry in this region and we must bring an international perspective to our own development processes to meet this need,” he said.
