UAE-set movie to premier in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE has been used as the backdrop for many a hit movie.

From Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the capital has been on the silver screen loads of times.

There's even a movie about the late Sheikh Zayed in the pipeline.

But not every film has to have a multi-million dollar budget and a global star in the lead role to make a splash.

Some are born and bred right here, with a local cast - and that makes us very proud indeed.

Independent feature film Louder will have its premiere this weekend at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai's City Walk before a VIP screening at Sir Bani Yas Island's Anantara resorts, where the majority of the movie was shot.

Just like the country it was shot in, the film has a real cultural mix in its cast, with around 30 nationalities on screen.

The UAE-produced movie was filmed at locations across Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Director Jacques Brown assembled a cast including Casey Shannon, Angelica Bridges and Christina Blunsum, as well as a few familiar faces from the entertainment scene here in the UAE that will have you spotting the people in the background as well as the sights and attractions of Abu Dhabi.

The movie tells a story about love and discovering your inner voice, with everybody involved in the project joining the team on an unpaid basis and getting a share of the profits from sales and distribution.

The premiere is in Dubai on Sunday April 28 at 7pm, and the public is welcome to go along.

All you need to do is head over to to get hold of your tickets.
