Six short Made in Qatar films to be screened publicly on 25 August

Doha Film Institute has partnered with Embrace Doha, an independent culture house, to host public screenings at Souq Al Wakra that will further strengthen the collaboration between the local community and Qatar's homegrown talents.

The new partnership is aimed at nurturing community engagement and making Doha Film Institute's film screenings even more accessible to the public and will flag off with the first-ever public screening of local films in Souq Al Wakra on 25 August with a 'Made in Qatar' showcase of six short films, several of them award-winning works of art that highlight the rich creative talent in the country. The second screening is scheduled for 15 September 2022.

"As we prepare for the tenth edition of our flagship Ajyal Film Festival in a year of unprecedented excitement in the nation, we are further enhancing our local partnerships and creating vibrant platforms for the wider community in Qatar to discover stories originating from our country. Such events help amplify voices from Qatar's growing national film industry and unlock opportunities for emerging home-grown creators to drive the creation of compelling content from our region and foster understanding through artistic dialogue," said Fatma Hassan Al Remaihi, Chief Executive Officer, Doha Film Institute.

"Our partnership with Embrace Doha will create another inspiring venue for the public to applaud and appreciate the enthusiasm, creativity and passion of our nation's exciting voices in film, with locally conceived ideas that are being celebrated outside Qatar," she added.
