Entertainment Media Use in the Middle East, carried out by Northwestern University in Qatar with the collaboration and support of Doha Film Institute, explores not only the use of entertainment media in the region, but also people's attitudes toward those media and the broader cultural environment. Special attention is given to film, television, and online and social media, as well as to questions of government regulation, cultural preservation, and children's media.

This study complements a previous region-wide survey focused on news and information media conducted by NU-Q in 2013 and titled, Media Use in the Middle East. These works endeavor to fill a gap in available knowledge on media use in the Arab world.
