Now, if that's not enough excitement for Qatar, famed film maker and director, Martin Scorsese, has sent his personal congratulatory message to Doha Film Institute, along with some good advice on the occasion of their first anniversary.
Lookout, Doha Film Institute is officially on the map. I look forward to this year's festival kickoff on October 25th at Doha's beautiful Katara Cultural Village, the perfect venue for the event. Katara's electric atmosphere with the excitement of the film festival is nothing short of magical. See you there!
