La 5eme édition du festival du film pour la jeunesse se déroule au Qatar du 29 novembre au 4 décembre 2017.

Un ensemble d’activités au tour de la jeunesse

Certes il y a la magie du cinéma avec ses films d’animations, courts et longs métrages, documentaires et autres, mais il y a aussi de nombreuses activités pour la jeunesse résidante au Qatar. Ce festival vise en priorité les pré-ados, mais il accepte aussi les parents et grands-parents qui souhaitent accompagner leurs enfants et adolescents.

About the Ajyal Youth Film Festival

From 29 November – 4 December, 2017, the annual Ajyal Youth Film Festival (the “Festival”) returns for its fifth anniversary installment, building on the Doha Film Institute’s (the “Institute”) history of community-based film programming, the success of the Festival’s previous editions, as well as a year-round screening series. Feature-length and short films from around the world will inspire cultural dialogue among young audiences in Qatar. The six-day Festival will bridge gaps and bring generations together (‘ajyal’ is Arabic for ‘generations’) through activities and events designed to inspire creative interaction among the various sectors of the regional community.

The Festival format includes the Ajyal Competition, as well as the Made in Qatar section. Alongside the official film programme, the Festival also features Special Screenings, Thematic Tributes, Cinema Under the Stars and the Creativity Hub., The Ajyal Competition, described below, is the core component of the Festival and presents hundreds of young people from around the world with the opportunity to sit on the juries that decide the Festival’s competition winners.

The Festival is designed to enhance and encourage regional film-related education programmes, making it an engaging, fun experience for families and educators through collective and individual interaction with the medium of cinema. At the same time, the Festival provides an open forum for dialogue and discourse among its many participants, where the full scope of complex issues facing today’s youth can be discussed. This not only empowers the next generation of storytellers, but also gives them a secure platform from which their voices can be heard.
