Qumra 2019 provides audiences with access to award-winning films and offers a unique opportunity to discover emerging technologies and disruptive new trends shaping the global industry.

According to Fatma Hassan Al-Remaihi, CEO of the Doha Film Institute, “Qumra Talks brings important topical industry conversations to Doha that connects Qatar’s creative community to current issues and developments, and brings great value to the overall Qumra experience.”

Qumra Talks 2019 will present two unique sessions with prominent voices and trend setters from the global industry.

The Talks will open with The Black List: Revolutionising How Films Get Chosen with Franklin Leonard on Saturday March 16.

The renowned development executive and founder and CEO of The Black List (an innovative network that has connected more than 400 previously unproduced scripts with buyers and distributors) will focus on the ways that technology and culture has impacted the Hollywood film industry.

Films produced by The Black List have grossed over USD 26 billion in box office worldwide and won 53 Academy Awards from 262 nominations.

The second talk, Welcome to the new reality: How VR is changing our world, on Monday March 18, with award-winning curator, producer and internationally renowned VR leader Michel Reilhac, will focus on the increasing popularity of virtual reality and how the medium will become more utilised as a platform for communication, training, education, commerce and entertainment.

In his talk, Michel will speak about the practical challenges that lie ahead for the growth of this industry and the shift in our connection with reality.

Attendees to this talk will be able to access the VR lounge on the same admission ticket.

Qumra 2019 will also present the Qumra VR lounge powered by Diversion Cinema which explores the world of virtual reality through two internationally acclaimed works, Grand Prix winners at Venice VR, Arden’s Wake/Tide’s Fall by Eugene Chung and Spheres produced by Darren Aronofsky.

Open to ticket holders and Qumra Pass delegates. Qumra VR lounge is open on March 16, 18 2pm-4pm; March 17,19 2pm-6pm. For more information, visit www.dohafilminstitute.com/qumra/qumratalks.
