An Exhibition by Doha Film Institute

This year’s exhibition aims to engage audiences through the power of storytelling. We want to profoundly connect with visitors through engaging narratives embodied within different forms of art. It will focus more on stories the artists share with us, executed through their medium of preference from beginning, middle to end.

Join us at Katara’s Cultural Village (Building 19 Gallery 1)

19th – 23rd Nov – 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM
22nd Nov – 2:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Entrance is free

Ajyal Tunes

At Ajyal, we love to support artists from every discipline. This year, we turn a spotlight on our underground local music scene by bringing together Qatar-based performers and internationally acclaimed musicians. Bring your friends and chill with the artists over the weekend at one of our intimate community gatherings. Exclusive line-up will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
