Now in its 4th edition, META Cinema Forum is the largest cinema convention, covering Middle East and African markets. The event has grown over the years to include more regions, more projects, more partners and become the single most important regional gathering for the cinema sector.

The 4th edition is back bigger and better than ever, with more sessions covering various markets in detail, an expanded convention floor, additional trainings, workshops, and of course a stronger line-up of slates, product presentations and film features.

To celebrate the recovery of the cinema sector post the pandemic era, many post event receptions and parties will allow for a fun filled casual networking for all stakeholders.
