Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival E-mail

Over 100 student films were screened in the various competitions of the 17th International Student Film Festival, which took place at Cinematheque Tel Aviv and throughout the city between 31 May and 6 June. Now in its 29th year, the festival is rated as one of the largest and most important of its kind in the world.

The festival is the main platform in Israel for short films – the International Competition offers a panoramic view of students’ perspectives worldwide, the Israeli Competition presents the upcoming talents of the young filmmakers in Israel, and the Short Independent Film Competition enables viewers to recognise the developed style of young Israeli directors.

Alongside the competitions, the festival paid tribute to “Omnibus Films”, a fulllength film made of shorts, directed by a number of filmmakers to create a diverse, pluralistic film. Also, a short film conference was held in collaboration with “Beit Berl” school, a New Media programme illuminated burning issues in new methods of interactive storytelling, and “Prologue – a framework for short films” had its debut screenings.
