To strengthen ties between two of Qatar’s leading media institutions, Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) and Doha Film Institute (DFI) announced that they will partner to help bring local film and media work front and center at the fourth edition of Doha Tribeca Film Festival.

The two organisations agreed to a collaboration last week that allows for a variety of activities to support local media producers, advance media literacy, and promote Qatar’s emerging film and media industry, crowned by a co-hosted opening night for the Made in Qatar series on November 18. DTFF organisers had recently announced that this year’s edition of the international festival will showcase the largest number of ‘Made in Qatar’ films yet, including 15 world premieres.
