Eurimages fund eyes Mideast via Dubai

Fund to hold exec board meeting at 9th edition of festival

European co-production fund Eurimages is entering the Middle East fold via the Dubai Intl. Film Festival.

The fund, which is considering extending its reach beyond Europe, will hold an executive board meeting during the 9th edition of Dubai, which runs Dec. 9-16. It will be the first time Eurimages holds the meet outside Europe.

Industryites from 36 Eurimages-eligible European countries will have the opportunity to delve into the Gulf film scene and do some networking.

“We welcome Eurimages into the Middle East fold and are greatly encouraged by their enthusiasm for Arabic filmmakers and content,” said Dubai managing director Shivani Pandya.

The $30 million Eurimages fund currently supports an average 60 pics per year.
