Cinema and Filmmaking in the Gulf and Mashreq

Inspired by the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, which took place annually between 2008 and 2014, this collection originated with efforts to acquire copies of films that screened at that festival, in particular works of filmmakers from the UAE and the wider Gulf region. Additional works by filmmakers throughout the Arab world have been included, as those works have been used for teaching and research at NYUAD. To date, this collection comprises approximately 400 titles.
