How does one convey emotions, feelings and experiences in a short animated film? This year, again, we set out to explore the boundaries of imagination through the voices of filmmakers and screenwriters who express their inner world through the never-ending options of animation.
The Makor Foundation for Israeli Films (NPO) in collaboration with the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival, for its fifth year, supports the short animated film project, presenting a production grant of up to NIS 150,000 for selected projects.
Out of all the projects submitted, seven were chosen to participate. After two months of mentoring and guidance, they will be presented at a pitching event to a panel of judges. Two projects will then be selected and receive a production grant, and the completed films will be shown at a pre-premiere screening at the 2023 Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival.
