With culture, community, education and entertainment at its foundation, DFI is an all-encompassing film hub in Doha, and a film resource for the region, and the world. At DFI we believe firmly in the power of film, and as we like to say, ‘Film is Life’.

H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani founded the Doha Film Institute with the aim of discovering and empowering filmmaking talent in the region – both aspirant and established – to share their unique stories with the world.

Today, the Institute’s year-round initiatives include film education, production, financing and an annual international film festival held each October in Doha.
