Tell the story of your life in Qatar with #DariQatar, a cinematic tribute by the Doha Film Institute & Qatar Tourism Authority
The Doha Film Institute and Qatar Tourism Authority have joined hands to salute the nation with a feature-length documentary in which the people of Qatar are the heroes and directors.
With #DariQatar, Qatar citizens and residents have the opportunity to tell the story of their life in the country that will be included in a documentary to be curated by the Doha Film Institute. The fantastic panorama of the nation will principally cover six segments: Family, Change, Joyful Honesty, Harmony, Nature and Beauty.
The video may be shot on mobile phones or state-of-the-art cameras, and could cover practically anything and everything about the nation – from picturesque views to every-day moments of daily life. The Doha Film Institute will commission professionals and filmmakers to develop a storyline from the entire footage. The final cut of Dari Qatar, which means ‘My Home Qatar’ in Arabic, will premiere in late 2016.
People wanting to submit can read tips on filmmaking and submission details on www.dohafilminstitute.com, shoot their film and upload the video on the same site. Submissions are open from Dec. 13, 2015 to Sept. 30, 2016.
