At a discussion that followed, the film's screening on "filmmaking: the digital revolution," the spotlight was on canon's new digital technology, which has the potential to revolutionize the middle east's film industry landscape

Anurag agarwal, md, canon middle east, said: ?the arab film industry is witnessing unprecedented growth with a number of immensely talented young filmmakers stepping forward who have a serious cus on cinema. they have compelling stories to tell the world but are often constrained by budgets and support crew. with platforms such as dubai international film festival providing regional filmmakers strong international exposure, financing and industry support, their talents can be even more effectively channeled by leveraging the power of digital technology in filmmaking

?khaled abol naga's microphone is a great example of how arab filmmakers can draw on digital technology to cut the cost of production without compromising on quality.
