The 1 Min Films made in DTFF's Workshops with Community Outreach Programmer Scandar Copti were judged by Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, and new director Sophia Al Maria's The Racer won Best 1 Minute Film.

"There is a potential market for Arabic films and this award motivates filmmakers to make films in Arabic or with Arabic subject matter, with a universal  appeal," DTTF Community Outreach Programmer Scandar Copti said.

Working around the Festival's mission to inspire the next generation of filmmakers and provide a platform for the growth of the filmmaking industry in the Arab region, the awards provide an opportunity for aspiring and experienced filmmakers to pursue their dreams.
