Make way for a new Middle East and North Africa film distribution-exhibition powerhouse with close Hollywood ties and plex muscle to flex.
Majid Al Futtaim’s rapidly expanding VOX Cinemas chain has joined forces with Joseph Samaan’s Tanweer Group, the MENA and Southeast Asia distributor that acts as an agent for TV sales to Disney, Lakeshore, Miramax and other Hollywood companies, to form Tanweer MAF Pictures, known as TM Pictures.
The Dubai-based joint venture will be managed by an independent team of executives. Both companies will invest in acquisitions.
