Ajyal Film Festival 2020

Ajyal Film Festival Awards


Each of the three Ajyal Juries awards a Best Film prize to their favourite short and feature-length films, for a total of six awards. The directors of the winning films are awarded funding toward their next film, so jurors are empowered to support and promote future content that is relevant and important to them, in a proactive way. A jury of regional industry professionals decide the Best FIlm in the Made in Qatar section.
