Qatar is one of the smallest countries in the world, but it is also one of the richest.

The oil and gas wealth of the Gulf nation is being used to generate even more income, as its sovereign investment fund is hoovering up stock and shares around the world.

It is also investing heavily at home - in its people and in its future. The Doha Tribeca Film Festival, which is taking place in the capital, Doha, is just one of those investments.
