Established in 2009, last year the third installment of the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, included more than 50 films from 35 countries. The five-day event attracted an audience of more than 50,000 people. A lot of the movies were inspired by the Arab Spring-a fact appreciated by Robert De Niro who told the BBC: “”I’m curious to see what other movies will come here next year after the Arab Spring… and how the story unfolds. The reason Arab Spring arose was because of oppression. Now we hope that things shape down democratically, but it’s not going to be easy.”
