Abu Dhabi is seeking to usurp Dubai as the region’s leading media hub. The Islamic state remains wary of some western content, however, only agreeing to show edited versions of Syriana, the George Clooney film, because it feared that it would show the Gulf in a negative light.
Mr Borgerding, a former Walt Disney executive, said the first co-production partnerships would be announced within weeks. He would not comment on which Hollywood studios ADMC would work with, but highlighted its link with Warner Bros for video games development. It was also looking to work with film-makers in India, the UK and around the Middle East.
