Now in its second year, some of the instructors of the program’s courses are leading names in Israeli cinema, including a recent Academy Award nominee. The program is organized in cooperation with leading names in cinema from both Israel and the United States.

Included among the instructors is Director Tom Shoval, who was nominated for an Academy Award at the 2015 Oscars for ‘Aya’. Last year, the workshop hosted participants from the U.S., the U.K., India, China, and Brazil.
