A competition that gave the community a voice

When Tempo and the New York Film Academy Abu Dhabi decided to launch a film competition to celebrate UAE’s 40th anniversary, and give members of the community an opportunity to express their love and appreciation in short videos. The response was phenomenal! The event was held at Mamoura Auditorium and attended by film enthusiasts, industry experts, educationists and members of the public.





The “I love UAE” video competition concluded with the announcement of the winners and a debate by film experts and educationists on how best to nurture film making in the UAE. The winner of the “Me” category was Alina Mustafina, and of the “Me and My School Category” was Shabari Shankar.


Travel Travails



Whoever said “ It is not the destination but the journey that matters.” was profoundly insane and I suspect never had to negotiate the gauntlet of modern travel realities. Recently,  I returned to Abu Dhabi from three weeks in my homeland. I only get there once a year so it was a whirlwind of activity.
