Doha, January 16, 2013: Doha Film Institute (DFI) has announced the launch of ‘Hekayat Khaleejiya’ (Khaleeji Stories), a DFI year-round film appreciation programme that showcases Khaleeji films to the Doha community every three months.

Nawaf Al Janahi’s ‘Sea Shadow’ will launch the series, screening tomorrow, 17th January, at 7:00 PM at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and 18th January. The screening will be followed by an extended Q&A session with director Nawaf Al-Janahi and screenwriter Mohammed Hassan Ahmed.

Set in a small seaside neighborhood in the United Arab Emirates, ‘Sea Shadow’ follows teenagers Mansour and Kaltham as they struggle with tradition in their journey towards adulthood. Bound by family conventions and deep-rooted values, the pair must find the courage to forge their own paths.

The series was introduced to the community in Doha at a special reception on Tuesday 15th January at Katara, Cultural Village. The attendees were invited to the screening on Thursday 17th January, which was received with much excitement.

Join DFI at the launch of its latest series and get the chance to watch one of the best rated Khaleeji films and meet the talented filmmakers. For more information and ticket sales, please log to or at the Box Office at MIA, opened before the screening.
