Master Kishan at DTFF

DTFF in association with the Giffoni International Film Festival, the largest kids film festival, hosted a wonderful Giffoni welcoming event on Day 1 of DTFF. They’ve invited six Giffoni international jurors and 60 local jurors, both Qatari’s and expats, and throughout the festival they will watch films, learn about film making, attend panels and have the opportunity to exchange opinions and ideas.

Our aspiring DFI filmmaker Amir Ghonim had the chance to have a quick chat with the youngest professional film director, Master Kishan, who shares his experience so far.

Brigitte Lacombe’s ‘I AM FILM’ Exhibit

Brigitte Lacombe’s ‘I Am Film’ exhibition opened on Day 1 of DTFF at Katara, home of the Doha Film Institute.

The DFI commissioned exhibit is a celebratory work of Arab filmmakers and talent by world-renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe and her documentarian sister Marian Lacombe. The sisters spent three months travelling across the Middle East and the world to capture intimate portraits of the region’s most emerging and established names in cinema.
