The UAE's film industry is one of the fastest growing in the world. The UAE plays an active role in major international projects and key business events. The dialogue currently taking place between cinema in Russia and the UAE is about cooperation both in the creative and production.

How can the experience of international projects between Russia and the UAE support development of film industries in both countries?
