twofour54, Abu Dhabi’s media & creative industries hub, and the Abu Dhabi Film Commission have launched the Gulf’s first incentive scheme for international and regional producers to accelerate the emirate as first choice for companies needing location, production and post-production services.

The incentive - a rebate of up to 30% of qualifying spend in the emirate - is available from September 1 for feature films, TV, documentary, advertising and music video production. The qualifying spend relates to goods and services sourced from Abu Dhabi and for relevant expenditure on location or studio filming and post-production. It will also cover costs relating to the contracting of any UAE registered crew and services for activities in Abu Dhabi. Temporary accommodation costs in the emirate, as well as airline tickets and freight booked on Etihad Airways, will also qualify.  

Among recent productions successfully shot with twofour54 are The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz and directed by Academy Award nominee Tony Gilroy for Universal as well as big budget Bollywood production, Oru Maru Bhoomi Khatha, by legendary Indian director Priyadarshan, Oru Kal Oru Kandadi a Tamil film by Manickavasagom and the BBC’s Wild Arabia.
