"Each film I make feels like my last," Tilda Swinton said, eyes focused on the middle distance between herself and her audience.Swinton was center stage at the Qatari capital's Museum of Islamic Art Friday. Hers was the first of six moderated master classes by celebrated international cinema figures to be staged during Qumra, the Doha Film Institute's film incubator platform, now in its fourth edition.While discussing the 8 1/2 Foundation – the nonprofit she created with filmmaker-critic Mark Cousins, dedicated to exposing children to world cinema – Swinton remarked that the foundation's name was inspired less by the renowned 1963 Fellini film than it was an incident with her son.Joining Swinton is Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell (whose credits include "Shakespeare in Love" and "The Aviator"), who, like Swinton, came of age in Jarman's circle.Late in the master class, Bailey asked Swinton why she continued to collaborate with so many of the same directors.
