Jazwood is a term used to refer to Arabic motion pictures and in general, Arabic language-based entertainment. The word ‘Jaz’ is derived from the Arabic word of Al Jazeera meaning ‘Arabic Peninsula’, however the term Jazwood refers to Arabic entertainment and film industry not limited to a specific suburb, city or country but instead across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
