Part of the Official Selection of Al Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival, Flight 13 presents the experiences of Al Jazeera Sports Crew when they boarded a private aircraft to travel between two cities but the plane’s wheels failed to unfold in the air, before it hit the ground.

Al Kora depicts dedicated efforts of a brother and a sister, and their attempt to retrieve a lost football in an old Qatari village. It premiered in the inaugural Ajyal Youth Film Festival last November.

‘My Hero’ by Nora Al-Subai

Winner of the Made in Qatar competition at Ajyal Youth Film Festival, My Hero is the story of a young boy who idolizes his busy father and devises a clever way to spend more time with him.
