Dr.Almasoudi mentioned the formation of such atmospheres as a sign of organizer’s consideration of all necessary branches, saying that: “I saw various age groups in the festival, standing in lines to watch films. This was fascinating to me that documentary cinema has gained such popularity in your country.”
