About the event
MY ISRAEL (STUDENT SHORT FILM COMPETITION)
Featuring MY ISRAELI STORY
MY ISRAELI STORY, directed by Sharon Cohen, is a short film created by IAC Eitanim, a program for Israeli-American and Jewish-American teens. In Eitanim, students learn how to work as a team, explore challenging issues that impact Israeli and Jewish communities, and develop possible solutions.
Israeli and Jewish culture is often misrepresented in American media. The lack of cultural connection Israeli American and Jewish Americans experience is a major problem we face in our community. As a solution, Eitanim has created a short film that demonstrates the beauty and richness of Israel and its culture. The film is also Eitanim’s response to GPJFF’s call for short film submissions by student filmmakers. GPJFF wanted to know more about how students relate to Israel today. Through research, students learned about Israel’s advances in technology, innovation, and the State’s impact on the world. The students used their findings to create this short film. They hope you enjoy it!
