Film fans on Monday got their first glimpse of Catsaway, a new animated feature-length film by Emirati director Fadel Saeed AlMuhairi.

The first official trailer was released exclusively on the twofour54 Abu Dhabi YouTube channel.

Catsaway is being produced by Tent Pictures Productions, in cooperation with Juice Studios in Poland, and is being made at twofour54 in the UAE capital.

It is being directed by AlMuhairi, who also helmed Abood Kandaishan, which was nominated for 2014’s Muhr Emirati Award at Dubai International Film Festival, DIFF.

The movie, which is the director’s first animated film, is about a group of cats trying to make a home in Abu Dhabi as the city evolves around them. It features traditional hand-drawn animation rather than computer generated images.

After more than a year of pre-production work, production started earlier this year on the film.

Maryam Eid AlMheiri, CEO of Media Zone Authority – Abu Dhabi and twofour54, said: "Fadel is a long-standing member of our thriving media ecosystem at twofour54 and a wonderful example of the incredible creative talent that we are developing in Abu Dhabi as we realise our vision of being the capital for content creators."
