Open to delegates registered for DISCOP Dubai as content PRODUCER or content SELLER, the ARAB FORMAT ACCELERATOR (AFA) is a two-day program (25|26 February) dedicated to the adaptation of scripted and unscripted television rights for the Middle Eastern marketplace.

The AFA initiative will provide adaptation rights holders with an opportunity to “elevator pitch” original ideas as well as existing concepts for scripted and unscripted TV shows in a wide spectrum of content genres. These pitches will be directed at key production, commissioning and marketing executives driving television business across the Middle East.  

Co-organized with Arab Format Lab, a television content developer based in Dubai, Cairo and Djeedah, and chaired by Khulud ABU HOMOS, the CEO of Arab Format Lab, AFA is set to be a permanent fixture of DISCOP Dubai and will culminate with an awards ceremony, to take place on 27 February (the last day of DISCOP Dubai).
