Learning

The Doha Film Institute Learning initiatives nurture filmmakers in an atmosphere of curiosity and inclusivity through two parallel streams that provide opportunities for skills-sharing, feedback and direction from mentors.

In our Filmmaking Seminars, creative skills are shared in a series of discussions and practical exercises that delve into personal introspection, explore approaches to visual writing, consider various methods of film analysis and provide tangible knowledge in all areas of the filmmaking process.

Our Creative Consultations engage filmmakers with projects in various stages of evolution. After discussing current material with its creators, we connect filmmakers with experienced mentors for bespoke coaching under our supervision in order to ready projects to take the next step toward completion.

Our aspiration is to expose filmmakers to the full range of cinematic styles, ideas and approaches in order to situate their work within the broader context of the art of cinema.

We believe that filmmaking is a journey of self-discovery, and our seminars and consultations offer a safe haven for the creative development of an authentic personal voice.
