Dubai ON Demand is a subdivision of Ti22 films, a New York festival and Cannes Award Winning company founded by Reim El Houni.

“I knew that the industry was moving towards digital and had been following trends in the US, seeing the shift through my company Ti22 Films, I reached out to a group of personalities in the region, many who I had worked with before while executive producing at Dubai One. Each person, saw the vision I was trying to create for the channel and joined the team to develop Dubai ON Demand.

Our group is a wonderful mix of personalities, each of whom will bring something unique and fresh to Dubai ON Demand whilst channeling their passions and professions across the lifestyle industry. Among our presenters, some have previously presented for Dubai One and others are individuals who are specialists within their respective fields with great energy!

The timing for this project is perfect as it comes at a time when Dubai One has shifted their strategy towards acquisition and ended local production, we are ready to fill that gap and cater to that audience,” says Reim, Executive Producer and Managing Director of Ti22 Films.

Dubai ON Demand will upload all the red carpet moments and celebrity interviews at Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) to the channel.
