#DariQatar, the crowd-sourced film initiative by Doha Film Institute (DFI) and Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), is to be screened at the Museum of Islamic Art Park as part of the ‘Cinema Under the Stars’ initiative.
Two open-air screenings, which are free for the public, will take place on Saturday from 7pm to 8pm, giving the community another opportunity to watch an inspirational work.
The film will feature personal stories that give insights into the diversity of Qatar and serve as honest portraits of life in the nation.
The open-air screening follows the film’s successful world premiere and public screenings at Novo Cinemas at The Pearl-Qatar in December.
#DariQatar received more than 10,000 submissions from over 200 enthusiasts, representing 22 nationalities.
Among the top contributors are 17 Qatari nationals, who joined others in submitting video clips of the nation, covering six broad themes: hope, diversity, tradition, family, friendship and uniquely Qatar. The final cut of #DariQatar is created form over video footage of more than 250 hours.
From introducing viewers to Qatar through visual stories of its tradition and heritage to highlighting the Islamic heritage and culture, #DariQatar will take viewers to modern Qatar, and incorporates personal stories of people who call Qatar home.
#DariQatar is presented by DFI and QTA with the support of platinum partners: Occidental Petroleum Corporation and United Development Company, the developer of The Pearl Qatar.
