Join the growing media industry in Dubai.

An important mandate of the Dubai Film and TV Commission (DFTC) is to help develop the local production industry.

The strengthening of Dubai-based talent will enable filmmakers to successfully take their productions from script to screen.

DFTC encourages media professionals and film and TV fans to actively participate in the growing media industry in Dubai. Opportunities to engage are plentiful, whether scouting new locations for film shoots, answering a casting call, volunteering during a film festival or interning with a production company.
