DFI provides Continuous support to Qatari filmmakers

The Doha Film Institute (DFI) has been continuously supporting the participation of Qatari filmmakers in various international film events, workshops and festivals, its CEO Fatma al-Remaihi has said.

Speaking to reporters at a discussion at Katara – the Cultural Village on Thursday, she stressed that they are committed to creating a vibrant film industry in Qatar and in the region by unlocking the potentials of the Arab cinema and nurturing Arab talents.

“We created an ecosystem that supports these objectives, from learning and training to film funding, to film industry events, to film production, and to marketing distribution and presentation,” she noted.

The institute supported three Qatari filmmakers to attend the industry conference at the Toronto International Film Festival recently.
