FEATURED PROJECT

COMMERCIAL & CITY CENTER

JEWEL & PINEWOOD ISKANDAR MALAYSIA STUDIO

This world-class integrated studio facility is being developed by Iskandar Malaysia Studio Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad, in partnership with Pinewood Shepperton Studios of the United Kingdom, the largest independent studio operator in the world, which hosted the productions of nearly the entire James Bond series, amongst more than 1500 other films, over the course of its 75-year history.  Upon its commercial opening in early 2013, PIMS aims to cater for the media content production market in Malaysia and Asia-Pacific initially, and global international productions over the medium to long term.

 

PIMS is expected to contribute to the development of the country’s Creative Industries through the film/TV production value chain, with spill-over effects to other economic sectors like tourism, finance, and high-value manufacturing. The development of a Creative eco-system in Iskandar Malaysia will complement the development of the Creative Industries in KL vicinity and the Singapore, while the involvement of internationally reputable players will enhance Iskandar Malaysia’s profile internationally and promote local capabilities.
