His Excellency Mohamed Al Mubarak, President of twofour54 and Image Nation Abu Dhabi, said: “This agreement strengthens the cultural relationship between our creative industries and supports the development of Abu Dhabi`s film and television sector by creating new opportunities for cooperation that will lead to the development of better quality content, underpinned by the VaE values of acceptance and respect.” Hans Fraikin, Abu Dhabi Film Commissioner, said: “We are very pleased with this historic cooperation agreement with israel Film Fund and Sam Spiegel Film School. This new partnership between the UAE and Israel will be extremely beneficial for our nascent UAE film and TV community, as it will allow our talented content creators to expand their landscapes and develop skills from different skills. Israeli extremists have accused Netanyahu of missing an opportunity to annex parts of Israel`s biblical land. Naftali Bennett, a pro-settler lawmaker, welcomed the deal but said it was “tragic that Netanyahu didn`t take advantage of this moment.” The deal also set out plans for a regional film festival that will shoot annually between Abu Dhabi and Israel and feature Emirati and Israeli productions and co-productions. The agreement makes the UAE the third Arab country to maintain full diplomatic relations with Israel, after Egypt and Jordan. They announced this in a joint statement and said agreements between Israel and the UAE were expected in the coming weeks in areas such as tourism, direct flights and embassies. Thursday`s deal offers “the feeling that this is historic” and a change for Trump to “have a number of great moments in the coming months.” Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, called a meeting of his supreme leadership on Thursday night, and then his spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeneh said the deal was a “betrayal.” He added that the UAE must reverse the decision and urged other Arab countries not to follow “to the detriment of Palestinian rights.” The Abu Dhabi Film Commission (ADFC), the Israel Film Fund (IFF) and the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film and Television School (JSFS) have reached a comprehensive agreement focused on goodwill and bilateral cooperation in the fields of film and television. The agreement will set up several training and development programs for Emirati and Israeli filmmakers in partnership with the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film and Television School TV. The agreement follows the official signing ceremony at the White House for the U.S.-brokered agreement, during which Israel established formal relations with two Arab states, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The future objectives of the partnership will also be announced shortly and will include a bilateral film co-production agreement to facilitate and promote co-production between the Abu Dhabi film industry and Israel. Trump has seen a significant boost for a president lagging behind in opinion polls and severely criticized for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. .
