Once again, the Ajyal Youth Film Festival is pleased to celebrate the exciting state of filmmaking at home with our annual slate of work made right here in Qatar. This year, we present two programmes of shorts, including narratives, documentaries and thoughtful essays. The films were made independently, through Qatar University or Northwestern University in Qatar, or with the support of the Doha Film Institute’s workshops and funding programmes.
