The United Arab Emirates (UAE) surprised the world by making a historic decision to recognize Israel and establish bilateral relations with it.
The UAE took this unusual step on August 15 and later on August 29, the UAE government revoked its boycott of Israel.
For the first time since the restoration of relations between the two countries, a plane flying over Israeli territory arrived in Abu Dhabi from Jerusalem on August 31.
After the resumption of relations between the two countries, while the Muslim world sharply criticized the United Arab Emirates, there were also reports that other Arab countries may soon recognize Israel.
Following the UAE’s move, an agreement has now been penned between the two countries’ film companies.
The Abu Dhabi Film Commission, the Israel Film Fund and the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film and Television School have agreed to train and produce the film, according to a joint statement issued today (September 21), according to reports.
The agreement includes plans for an annual regional film festival in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and in Israel.
Under the agreement, the two sides will hold training programs for filmmakers from both countries for several months, culminating in the Abu Dhabi-Israel Film and Television Co-Productions.
The statement said that for the first time, Emirati filmmakers will be represented in the International Film Lab and a UAE director will be invited to participate in the jury in the 2021 edition of the annual Film Lab Competition.
Earlier, an Israeli model arrived in the United Arab Emirates for the first time and had a photoshoot with a Russian model of Emirati origin.
Israeli model May Tager arrived in Dubai for a photoshoot to promote the Israeli brand (Fix) that makes women’s underwear.
According to the report, May Tager had a photoshoot of women’s clothing in the desert of Dubai with Russian-born model Anastasia, a resident of the United Arab Emirates.
