Cinema by the beach catches up in the Gulf
Dubai: First it was Abu Dhabi and now Qatar.
The joy of watching cinema on open beaches is fast catching up
with the denizens in the Gulf.
During the Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF), being held
in Qatar`s capital city of Doha, Mira Nair`s Monsoon Wedding
and The Namesake will be screened alongside a host of classic
movies, all under the stars – for free.
DTFF will be screening eight movies each during the four
day festival beginning October 29, at a variety of venues,
including a beach transformed into an outdoor cinema.
A special screening of the Egyptian classic, The Mummy,
recently restored by Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema
Foundation, will be held here.
As a part of its `Opening Night` festivities, DTFF will
host a special screening of Amelia, the new Mira Nair film on
the grounds of the Museum of Islamic Art.
"We`re thrilled to be able to offer the community not
one, not two, but eight opportunities to see amazing films for
free," Amanda Palmer, Executive Director DTFF said.
On each night of the Festival, we hope to create an
unforgettable, truly accessible movie-going experience at some
of Doha`s most scenic locales, the director added.
On the final night of DTFF on November 1, there will
be a free, open-air screening of a surprise, top-secret film
on the grounds of the Museum of Islamic Art.
