Ajyal Film Festival 2022


The Ajyal Film Festival

Get Ready for Ajyal 2022!

The Doha Film Institute is delighted to present our 2022 Special Edition of the Ajyal Film Festival from 1–8 October. This year’s format is a little different as our screenings will be exclusively for our Ajyal Jurors.

Our unmissable Jury Experience will give selected jurors access to the very best in international cinema, inspiring talks, exciting workshops and thought-provoking masterclasses—all in an innovative hybrid format.

The Ajyal Jury Competition is the core component of the festival and presents our jurors aged 8-25 with the incredible opportunity to decide Ajyal’s competition winners. The directors of the winning films are granted funding toward their next film, so jurors are empowered to support and promote future content that is relevant and meaningful to them.

We’ll be opening registrations in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more details soon!
