Imagenation Abu Dhabi has announced the launch of EmiratiFilmStar.Com, an online portal designed to tap into the region’s acting talent.

Emiratis and Arab expatriates in the UAE are invited to register on the site, where they will be added to a database of actors from which Imagenation Abu Dhabi casting directors can search for new as well as established faces.

The site is live from today (June 22) and will be available in both English and Arabic.
