Garcia Bernal was in Qatar to mentor four film projects at Qumra, the Doha Film Institute's brand new film incubation platform, which wrapped Wednesday.Each evening one of the masters' films was projected, as was a well regarded film from the Middle East.Each of Qumra's 29 projects is at various stages of development – from script-drafting to late post-production – summarized by the categories "In Development," "Works in Progress" and "Picture Lock," the latter comprised of three completed films in need of sales and distribution advice. The Abunasser brothers have tightened the noose on the concept by setting the salon in Gaza – where the women are besieged by the neighborhood mafia family (which has decided today's a good time to liberate a lion from Gaza's zoo) and Gaza's police force, who've decided today's the day to crack down on the mafia.It's challenging to structure a one-size-fits-all film incubation platform, simply because the needs of all filmmakers are not the same, especially when they're at different stages of development.
