Film festival offers new breaks to Middle East filmmakers

The Doha Tribeca film festival has opened in Qatar giving film makers from the Middle East a new chance to break into the industry.

The film festival is a joint venture between the Doha film institute and the Tribeca festival in the USA.

It is attended by Arab and international producers, directors and actors who come together to mentor young talents and show them the tricks of the trade.
