News, Content production


 Following the successful launch of the MEFCC curated page on at the 2nd Annual Middle East Film and Comic Con , the website has kicked off its second phase with several new projects by creative content producers from across the Arab world.

Crowd-funding is a relatively new concept for the region which involves connecting the public directly with great ideas and creative talent which they can support and nurture into reality. It allows creative talent to promote their projects to a ready-made audience and gives fans who are inspired by an idea or a story the chance to get involved.

The first crowdfunding project through this collaboration is the Comic Jinnrise which follows the successful launch of Jinnrise at MEFCC 2012 and the subsequent print launch with international publishers IDW (the world’s fourth largest comic publisher and company behind Transformers, Star Trek and many other titles), Jabal Entertainment, the company behind Jinnrise plans is looking to create an exclusive Arabic language issue of the well received series as is the first project on the platform.

Working with talent from the East and West, Jinnrise – brings a visionary and diverse model of storytelling to audiences worldwide and Sohaib Awan, CEO of Jabal Entertainment commented, “As a long-time fan of things like Star Wars, I’ve often wondered why no ‘myth of our age’ was inspired by the conventions of the Middle and Far East andwith Jinnrise I set out to create something that could resonate with both regional and international readers.”
