Imagenation launches internship

Program will boost film talent in UAE

Imagenation Abu Dhabi is launching a Hollywood-Bollywood internship program for film talent from the United Arab Emirates.

The program — dubbed Mawaheb, which translates to talents in English — is supported by Imagenation’s international partners, including Participant Media, National Geographic Films and Hyde Park Entertainment.

A mix of placements are being offered, such as appointments at joint venture offices in New York and Los Angeles and placements on film sets in Bollywood and Hollywood.

Imagenation chairman Mohamed Khalaf Al Mazrouei said he hoped the internships would jump-start a sustainable Emirati film industry.

Imagenation recently launched its first slate of six Emirati films that it will develop, finance and produce over the next two years, including coming-of-age pic “Sea Shadow,” which will shoot in the United Arab Emirates in the fall.
