Studio City Overview
Dubai Studio City is a full scale film and TV production centre with associated residential and hotel accommodation. As of September 2020 only a small part of the area has been developed, mainly around the original studio buildings complex. The rest of the area is still a vast open desert.
Together with Dubai Media City, Dubai Studio City belongs to TECOM Investments, a subsidiary of Dubai Holding.
The development was launched in 2005 and provides facilities and services to companies across the broadcasting, film production, TV, music, and entertainment sectors.
