NEOM is part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 plan for the future of the Kingdom and aims to create a semi-autonomous region of Saudi Arabia, with its own discrete legal and regulatory system.
An important element is the development of a vibrant media industries sector, which is recognised as a growth driver and powerful force for economies and societies globally. NEOM’s focus is to become the regional epicentre of the media industries, offering an unparalleled environment for content creation and establishing itself amongst elite global media hubs.
We will create a new centre for the region’s media and creative industries by establishing the world’s first physically and technologically integrated creative media hub focused on screen production, gaming and digital publishing.
At the heart of the creative industries is talent. NEOM will deliver industry-focused applied learning programmes to support the ongoing development of talent pipeline across the development and production process, ensuring a sustainable talent pool, skilled to international standards, to support the local, regional and international industry.
We provide cutting-edge infrastructure, driving efficiency and productivity by exploiting technology to expand the creative process and workflows beyond current boundaries; all from one co-located, creative campus at a scale that has not been achieved before in the region or internationally, while providing industry and talent with their best lifestyle by living and working in the most livable & tech-advanced city in the world.
As we accelerate the development of our industry ecosystem, NEOM offers highly attractive production (location, post and vfx) incentives for film, TV and games production. Additionally, we will support your relocation to NEOM to make the transition as smooth as possible and create the optimal platform for your business to harness the powerful opportunities of the MENA region.
We have an experienced, international production and locations support service team which will help deliver as seamless a production experience. The first of our initial 4 sound stages will be operational in January 2022, offering a range of stages from 2,400m² - 4,000m² with backlots and additional production and support space.
With easy and direct transport links, access to crews, fast track logistical support, impressive equipment inventory, highly attractive incentives and a world class team from the industry who understand your needs and know what it takes and will make it happen, NEOM is open for business.
