The Cinema of the United Arab Emirates is minimal. There is only one Emirati film as of 2007, Al-Hilm, about a group of frustrated actors/directors wandering aimlessly in the desert. However there are a large number of short films from the country (the makers of which have been dubbed the 'Emerging Emiratis'). In addition the UAE is a popular filming location for Bollywood films.

The UAE has an annual film festival held in Dubai. A new film studio (Studio City) is being built in the city.
