Filmworks was established in Dubai in 1998. Since then, Filmworks has invested heavily in developing the commercial and feature film industry within the UAE. Filmworks is responsible for opening the region to the international facilitation of commercials and feature films leading to a continual stream of productions now being shot within the UAE, and attracting films like Syriana and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol to Dubai, as well as The Kingdom and Djinn to Abu Dhabi.
Over the years, Filmworks has collaborated and secured relationships with the top talent and companies in the business. We believe that people are our natural resources and today the Filmworks group employs a vibrant team of over 70 professionals from across the globe as well as having sponsored and trained over 60% of the freelance crew within the UAE. Our commitment to employ and train the most experienced and talented staff available, allows us to consistently produce work that lives up to the high standard associated with our name.
Filmworks Dubai offers a full production service for regional and International production of TV Commercials, Feature Films, Digital content, Documentaries and TV Series. Our experienced team can provide solutions and suggestions to ensure your production meets the highest possible standards at the budget you need.

Our Team in Dubai
In order to develop an industry, it is imperative to attract the right calibre of experience and professionalism. Filmworks was directly responsible for bringing the Kodak film laboratories to the UAE, while also forming joint ventures with Arri Media, London (a leading equipment rental company) and now our very own internal Post Production house, Filmworks Post
In recent years the Filmworks Group has expanded worldwide and we are able to offer the same high standard of work through our other offices in Abu Dhabi, Beirut, South Africa and Los Angeles. These locations enable us to provide our clients with the very best choices and production values possible.
