Doha Tribeca fest lines up juries

Sabry, Moulessehoul, Neshat, Al Mansour to judge entries

Tunisian actress Hend Sabry, Algerian author Mohammed Moulessehoul, Iranian artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat and Saudi filmmaker Haifaa Al Mansour will be among the notable Arab filmmakers and artists comprising the four juries of the Arab Film Competition and the Made in Qatar contest at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, fest execs announced Wednesday.

DTFF’s Arab Film Competition is the only competition of its kind among regional film fests. This year, 27 films that span the region, from Algeria to Egypt to Iran, will compete across three categories: Feature Narrative, Documentary Narrative and Short Film.

Made in Qatar, which evaluates locally-made cinema, is breaking records this year with 19 entries, including 15 world premieres.

Fest will also include a four-film showcase to the cinema of Algeria, dubbed “Tribute to Algerian Cinema: Caught Between Past and Present,” a look at the nation’s post-colonial struggles as it approaches its 50th anniversary of independence. The tribute will wrap with a live performance by Algerian jazz musician Safy Boutella on Nov. 22.

DTFF will run from Nov. 17-24.
