Doha Film Institute invites all filmmakers in Qatar to submit their films to the “Made in Qatar” section. The winner of the competition will receive a Development prize of $10,000 (USD) towards future film project.
In order to be eligible for the “Made in Qatar” section, the film must be a narrative or documentary of any length and the writer, director or producer is a Qatari national or a non-Qatari who lives in Qatar. If not, the majority of the film must be shot in Qatar or the story is based on or about Qatar.
The “Made in Qatar” section is a significant platform that creates the opportunity of publicity and exposure on a regional and international scale.
