Doha Film Institute Qumra


Doha Film Institute presents Qumra, an initiative that seeks to provide mentorship, nurturing, and hands-on development for filmmakers from Qatar and around the world.

Over the past six years, Qumra has been a one-of-a-kind professional incubator crucial to the success of filmmakers from the Arab world and beyond. The programme is designed to provide creative and professional support to Directors and Producers attached to thirty features, six series and twelve short film projects (fiction and documentary) in development or post-production stages.

They include a number of emerging filmmakers from Qatar, as well as regional and international recipients from the Institute’s funding programmes.
