Cinema of Oman

Cinema of Oman
Cinema in Sur
Gross Box Office (2012)[1]
Total $1.3 million

The cinema of Oman is very small, there being only one Omani film Al-Boom (2006) as of 2007 and a joint US-Indian-Omani production "Pirate's Blood" starring local and international actors. Stegath Dorr's film "Blood Desert" was also released in 2014 many years after it premiered at the 2006 Oman Film Festival. Partly inspired by Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot, Al-Boom, deals with the challenges facing a small fishing community. There is an annual film festival held in Muscat. A few Hollywood movies have been partly filmed in the country.
