is the first Pan-Arab independent studio and fully integrative marketing and creative consultancy for the Arab film and Entertainment Industry. Less than three years after the company was established, it commenced its distribution activities under the company’s subsidiary MAD Distribution
, becoming one of the most important distribution companies in the Arab world.
Operating in Film & TV distribution niches currently not being served in the Arab-speaking-world, MAD Distribution
addresses an urgent market problem faced by the growing number of award-winning independent Arab and international filmmakers whose works face major challenges in being seen in theatres outside the festival circuit where they have achieved acclaim and collected numerous prizes.
films have been to more than 17 international festivals; including major festivals in Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Locarno, and Toronto. MAD
has also offered film distribution and marketing grants for filmmakers at the festivals in Malmo, Venice, Carthage and Cairo.
With a vision for unifying film markets in the Arab world, from the GCC to the Maghreb region, MAD Solutions
launched the Arab Cinema Center (ACC)
in 2015 as an international promotional platform for Arab cinema at international film festivals and events. The ACC
provides the filmmaking industry with a professional window to connect with their counterparts from all over the world through a number of networking opportunities and events that it organizes. The company also publishes the Arab Cinema Magazine
, the first English-language publication of its kind specialized in the Arab film industry to address international markets as it accompanies the ACC
in international festivals.
