Doha, Qatar: Special Equipment Provided For Outdoor Movie Screening at Doha Film Fest
Doha-based Creative Communication Group (CCG) supplied theВ Doha Tribeca Film Festival with light and sound equipment, including KF760 Long-Throw Line Array Modules from EAW.
The festival kicked off on 29 October and lasted for four days, with activities and screening held at several venues. The venue Souq Waqif hosted a special screening ofВ The Mummy (Al-Momia), recently restored by Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Foundation.
Jalal Dudin, managing partner of CCG, stated: "We used EAW KF760 at Souq Waqif to provide the sound for the screening ofВ The Mummy. The sound quality and surround-sound configuration of EAW speakers projected the movie's sound effects magnificently, especially since it was an open air screening. We have also used EAW KF730 Compact Line Array Modules at the auditorium, which was set up at the Qatar Museum of Islamic Art gallery for special screenings of the festival movies for celebrities and VIP invitees."
"We have worked in association with Michael Rome from Boston Sound and Light, and it was a successful collaboration," commented Philip Venter, CCG sound engineer. "All set-up was up to the standards of Dolby Surround Cinema specifications."
Inside the Gallery over the festival's four days, there were screenings and premieres of such films asCairo Time,В Coco Before Chanel andВ Team Qatar, which won a best film audience award of $50,000, presented by actor and Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro.
