Abu Dhabi Teams Up with National Geographic to Produce Films

National Geographic Entertainment and Imagenation Abu Dhabi are creating a 100 million dollar fund to produce 10-15 15 films over the next five years, a joint statement said on Saturday.

The venture will develop, produce, finance and acquire films that "focus on people's relationship to the world, their environment and each other," with the films having budgets of five million to 60 million dollars.

National Geographic Entertainment is a division of National Geographic Global Media. Imagenation Abu Dhabi is a wholly owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Media Co.

If you were commissioned to produce some films on the United Arab Emirates on what themes would you focus?
