Fatma Alremaihi was recently named one of Variety Magazines’ top 500 icons in the entertainment industry (among many global recognitions), and now two of DFI’s financed films have been nominated for this years’ Oscars. The Cave, a Syrian civil war film directed by Feras Fayyad, has been nominated in the best documentary feature category, while Brotherhood, by Montreal-based filmmaker Maryam Joobeur won the nomination in the best live-action short films.
Since 2010, DFI has organized workshops featuring many renowned international creatives, in addition to hosting and participating in film festivals and premieres. And with culture, community, and education at the core of both institutions, QAI and DFI are partnering to work together to promote and foster an appreciation and understanding of the cultural and social intersections between Qatar and the US through creative storytelling and community-driven programs and exchanges. And we wish to do more ahead of, and during, 2021 in collaboration with like-minded US institutions.
