Ajyal, Arabic word for generations, brings people of all ages together, through screenings and events that inspire creative interaction and stimulate cinematic dialogue.
Youth participation is at the heart of the Festival and its jury programme, which provides young people between the ages of 8 and 21, with an opportunity to watch analyses and discuss films from all over the world, developing critical thinking, self-expression, and an appreciation of cinema.
Fatma Al Remaihi, Chief Executive Officer of the Doha Film Institute and Director of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival, said, “We look forward to building on the successes of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival that proved that films can do more than just entertain; it can educate, inspire and bring communities together.”
The Cultural Village Foundation-Katara, continues as the Cultural Partner to the Festival for the fourth year running.
