Alremaihi met the challenges of the ongoing pandemic head-on in 2020 and 2021, turning the Qatar-based Doha Film Institute’s Ajyal Film Festival, held in November, into a hybrid event, mixing in-person and virtual screenings with interactive discussions and holding Qumra, its annual March master class and screening program, as an online-only experience featuring more than 150 film professionals from around the world.
