Ajyal Youth Film Festival 2016

Welcome to Ajyal
Join us as we celebrate our fifth anniversary of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival. In Arabic, ‘Ajyal’ means generations, and we invite people of all ages to attend the festival and discover the magic of cinema.

Our screenings
Taking place 29 November to 4 December at Katara, our schedule consists of the Ajyal Competition as well as public screenings of family-friendly short and feature-length films, including fiction, documentaries, animated films, and a series of works made right here in Qatar.

Other activities
There is so much to discover at this year’s festival with a bumper schedule of world-renowned new films, special red-carpet screenings, inspirational Ajyal Talks and exciting events like ‘Geekdom’ and our Family Weekend.
