By QLNews

Exciting news for filmmakers in Qatar and around the globe - Doha Film Institute (DFI) recently announced that submissions are now open for the much-anticipated 8th edition of the Ajyal Film Festival.

The Ajyal Film Festival is one of the biggest and most popular film festivals in the region, which brings a fascinating selection of the world's finest family-friendly films to Qatar.

The festival demonstrates the power of story-telling while encouraging discussions on issues that affect communities around the world.

This year the festival is slated to take place from November 18 to 23.

In a tweet on its twitter page, DFI called on individuals to "Submit your films at the link and be part of this annual celebration of local, regional and international cinema: https://dohafilminstitute.com/filmfestival/submit-a-film"

The six-day Festival will bridge gaps and bring generations together (‘Ajyal’ is Arabic for ‘generations’) through activities and events designed to inspire creative interaction among the various sectors of the regional community, DFI stated on its website.

The format of the festival includes the Ajyal Competition, as well as the Made in Qatar section.

In parallel, the festival's film program sees Special Screenings, Thematic Tributes, Cinema Under the Stars and the Creativity Hub.

Eligibility for entry and all relevant information is available here.

Last year's edition of the Ajyal Film Festival, for which Qatar Living was a proud media partner, featured as many as 96 films from 39 countries.
