Finance & Funding 14th Dec 2016 Doha Film Institute


The goals of the Doha Film Institute Grants Programme are to identify new talent, seek out new cinematic voices and discover universally resonant stories.

The Institute’s approach is to champion projects whose thrust is to explore, expand and cultivate authentic storytelling, with a keen interest in propelling forward contemporary work that demonstrates a deep understanding of the specific possibilities of the medium of cinema.

The Programme provides creative and financial assistance for short and feature-length projects, subject to eligibility criteria, by Qatari and international first- and second-time directors, as well as established MENA directors.

International Applicants
Middle East and North Africa (MENA)

Development, production and post-production funding is available for first- and second-time directors from the MENA region for feature-length projects. Short films are eligible for production funding only. Established MENA directors may apply for post-production funding for feature-length projects.

Non-MENA

Post-production funding is available for feature-length projects by first- and second-time non-MENA directors.

There are two submission cycles annually. The next cycle opens 9 January, 2017 and closes at midnight (GMT+3) on 23 January, 2017.

Applications sent by email will not be considered. Please submit via the online form, accessible only while submissions are open.
