Dubai’s love for free zones is quite evident from the fact that it hosts 30 out of total 45 free zones in UAE. Few of these free zones are of general type that are open for all types of businesses while others are established to facilitate specific type of business activity. Such free zones provide lots of facilities and incentives to the particular type of business they favor.
Dubai has established several free zones for growth of media and its related fields in the emirate. These include Dubai Media City (DMC), Dubai Internet City, Dubai Production City and others. An important among these is the Dubai Studio City (DSC).
DSC was launched in 2005 mainly to facilitate companies related to film production, broadcasting, music, TV and entertainment. Currently, around 275 companies have established their business in DSC and these companies have employed more than 2500 people. These companies are representing various parts of world as they comprise more than 90 nationalities.
As this is an exclusive free zone like several other free zones in Dubai, it is providing all the facilities required for running a production process. Few of these facilities include large sound stages, backlots, production offices, recording studios, sets, offices, water tanks etc. These facilities clearly indicate that DSC is trying its best to attract world’s best film production houses along with TV and other companies of entertainment industry.
DSC has already achieved quite success in attracting big media houses. In 2008, Dubai Studio City hosted film program in collaboration with Manhattan Film Academy.
