Event Details:


One of the biggest hurdles for any band or musical artist is getting people to hear your music. Especially bands that come from a country where there has never been an internationally recognized band.
In an effort to help cultivate the ever-growing music scene in Qatar, DFI are looking for a local band that has that special spark needed to put Qatar on the map of music.

DFI have opened up a competition that will offer a local band or artist the opportunity to make a music video with budding video directors from Qatar.

The competition is open to anyone in Qatar that has original music. An easy online application form is accessible through this link:

One band will be selected to be featured in a music video workshop that will run from May 22nd to June 9th. The workshop will be run by DFI’s Justin Kramer and internationally recognized filmmaker, Jackie Salloum.

To learn more about Justin and Jackie, please follow this link:

Don’t miss this chance to have one of your songs brought to life by some of the most creative and innovative filmmakers in Qatar.

Submissions close on April 24th.

The selected band will be notified by April 25th.
