Qumra 2017 (March 1 - March 8, 2017)



The Modern Masters and New Voices in Cinema include a showcase of films presented by Qumra Masters and critically acclaimed films funded by the Doha Film Institute.

Be the first in Qatar to watch some of 2016’s most acclaimed and award-winning movies at Qumra 2017 which include: Doga, Mimosas ad Tramontane (three Cannes 2016 wonders and awards winners) along with a diverse range of movie masterpieces by the masters of Qumra.

Qumra is an initiative that seeks to provide mentorship, nurturing, and hands-on development for filmmakers from Qatar and around the world. The primary motive of this international gathering of creative film professionals is to contribute to the development of emerging voices in cinema, with a special focus on first- and second-time filmmakers, alongside a series of screenings for Doha audiences featuring films by international masters and recipients of support from the Institute.

Qumra begins 3 March and continues through 8 March, with additional public screenings taking place 1 and 2 March. For more information on movie timings and ticket prices, check out: http://www.dohafilminstitute.com/qumra/films
