El Principe wins yet another award! This time its ‘Best Spanish Series’ at the 61st Edition of the Premios Ondas, a title it shares with ‘El Tiempo entre costuras’.

Each year, these awards recognize professionals, companies and national and international outstanding work in radio, radio advertising, television and music. The team at Stargate Studios Malta is really proud to have worked on all the VFX for the series, both the first season which has already aired, but also the upcoming second season of the series.

As Digital Studio went to press the Abu Dhabi Film Festival was in full swing, with Ali Mostafa’s latest feature film, From A to B, shown as the opening premiere. The festival had a total of seven world premieres, all of them from the Arab world, including Ali Mostafa’s film. “It was the first time in the festival’s history that we opened with an Emirati film and we are very proud about this landmark event,” said Ali Al Jabri, director of ADFF.

One company that has made serious inroads in helping to develop the wider ecosystem is Dubai-based MBC Group, which last year joined forces with California based Stargate Studios to set up a joint venture called Stargate Middle East.
