About the festival

The International Student Film Festival was founded in 1986 by the students of Tel Aviv University’s Department of Film and Television in order to promote academic artistry here and across the globe. Today, the festival is considered the greatest of its kind and it is one of the top three in its field. The festival is a non-profit organization and is produced and managed by volunteer students filled with passion for the art of film. The festival is characterized by young, fresh energy that distinguishes it from all other cultural events that take place here and around the world.

The festival is a long-time running cultural event, one that bears much significance on the film industry in Israel and it is the largest get-together of film students from across the world reaching all Israeli regions. What stands out the most about the festival is the number of films and schools that take part in it: More than 250 films from over 70 films schools from all over the world, the famous filmmakers who attend the festival and the special atmosphere that surrounds it. It is a week filled with young and subversive cinema, fascinating cinematic events, workshops, master classes, conventions, parties and exhibitions.

The festival is the center stage for the Short Film. The international competition displays a panoramic view of the inner world of young filmmakers across the world; the Israeli competition presents the future generation’s up and coming talents and the independent competition introduces films that were done outside of the academic environment.

The Festival is a one of a kind encounter for filmmakers and academics from across the world. Students from 30 different countries arrive to Tel Aviv with their films and stay with Israeli students. Furthermore, the festival hosts leading filmmakers and artists who hold professional master classes and screen their extensive work.
