DTFF Filmmaker's Lab

A group of 8 aspiring filmmakers from Qatar participate in a series of four filmmaking workshops over a 7 month period, including a week-long trip to New York.

In collaboration with DFI’s educational team — led by Oscar-nominated Palestinian filmmaker Scandar Copti and Tribeca Film Festival’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Gilmore — these intensive workshops in New York and Doha offer seven months of specialized courses that range from week-long screenwriting labs to comprehensive directing workshops. With the help of notable film professionals, these young filmmakers will harness this knowledge as they set out to execute a 10-minute short film from conception to finish. Final submissions are selected from Qatar and the entire region, with filmmakers invited to showcase their works at our annual Doha Tribeca Film Festival.
