Doha, November 27, 2013
Al Khaliji Commercial Bank has partnered with the Doha Film Institute’s (DFI) inaugural Ajyal Youth Film Festival as part of its ongoing commitment to support the cultural initiatives and Qatari youth.
Running from November 26 to 30, the Ajyal Youth Film Festival builds on the Doha Film Institute’s history of community-based programming.
Ajyal invites industry leaders and aspiring talented youth to come together and discuss cinema through events that inspire creative interaction, providing an interactive, collaborative forum where talented youth can express themselves.
“We are pleased to support the Ajyal Youth Film Festival,” said Mohd Al Atassi, group head of Corporate Affairs.
“Ajyal 2013 will highlight some of the best home grown films, and will raise awareness for talented Qataris working in the film industry. By partnering with the ‘Ajyal Youth Film Festival’ we support local filmmakers in a platform to introduce their work to the world and stand behind the local talent trying to make a name for Qatar in this highly competitive industry.”
Doha Film Institute is an independent, not-for-profit cultural organisation established in 2010. Its platforms include funding and production of local, regional and international films, educational programmes, film screenings, the Ajyal Youth Film Festival and the Qumra Doha Film Festival. – TradeArabia News Service
