The Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival in collaboration with the New Fund for Cinema and TV is excited to launch Women Short Film Lab for the first time this year.

Nine female filmmakers at the beginning of their careers have been selected to participate in the lab. During the festival week they will be coached by veteran women filmmakers and industry professionals from abroad, and will partake in masterclasses and workshops in directing, casting and sound design.

The lab will support the filmmakers while assisting them in developing short films with a broad female perspective. The main work will be dedicated to the development of the projects with an emphasis on script and cinematic language.
