Saudi Arabia is steadily becoming a hub for the production of television series and films, with major international production houses filming in the country. NEOM has provided the backdrop for 30 productions in the last 18 months, including Rupert Wyatt’s Desert Warrior

In the latest development, NEOM has announced a partnership with Telfaz11, a creative media studio that specializes in locally relevant content in the Middle East, to create around nine television series and films in the next three years. This collaboration will accelerate the growth of NEOM’s pipeline of productions and boost learning activities and multi-disciplinary talent development programs to create a vibrant talent pool.

Wayne Borg, Managing Director of Media Industries, Entertainment, and Culture at NEOM, said, “Our mission is to create a new world-class media hub at NEOM, one that supports the region’s industry to compete and succeed globally. This partnership with Telfaz11, coupled with our evolving infrastructure, crew depth, industry learning programs, and highly competitive incentive scheme, shows we are well on our way to achieving these goals.”
