Time: 6.00 PM to 10.00 PM

Continuing to provide year-round educational programs for a new generation of local Qataris and international filmmakers, the Doha Film Institute invites aspiring actors and actresses to apply for an exclusive five-day acting workshop with Ashraf Farah.

The star of “Pomegranates & Myrrh“ (Audience Award Winner for Best Arab Film at the 2009 Doha Tribeca Film Festival) and Julian Schnabel’s upcoming “Miral“, Farah will lead students through the entire film acting process from reading a script to engaging with the camera.

Through group exercises and one-on-one mentoring, this English-Arabic workshop will explore: screenplay analysis, rehearsals and warm-ups, scene prep, monologues, visualization techniques, remaining in character, and many cinema-specific skills including following eyelines, finding marks and maintaining continuity. By the final session, participants should come away with greatly improved self-confidence to create compelling work in front of a camera.
