Updated: May 6
I was invited by Paikin PR to write about the upcoming “Directors’ and Creators’ Week”, an Israeli Film and Television Festival at Cinematheque Tel-Aviv that will be taking place for its third year between September 1st until September 8th, 2018.
Most of the films screened in the festival have subtitles in English.
Director of the program: Michal Sofer Zimrani
The directors 'and creators' week is designed to direct a spotlight on the extensive work of women in the film and television industry, to encourage and promote the status of the creators and to increase the awareness of their production among the audience. The films deal with a wide variety of subjects. Loneliness, parenting, body image, sexual harassment, conversion to judaism, prostitution and life in the settlements will be at the center of the films that will be screened during the week of the directors and artists.
