The Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School is launching an online VOD site of its 30 best films of all times

 

 

 

The Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the launch of an online VOD site

of its 30 best films of all times, as voted on by an international jury of 100 film personas

 

Anthem, by Elad Keidan was voted in first place

 

As the 31st school year begins on November 1st under the direction of Dana Blankstein Cohen, the JSFS is launching a unique VOD site of its 30 best films of all times (1989-2019) as voted on by an international jury of 100 film personas from 45 different countries.

 

The VOD site allows viewers to experience the award-winning debuts of Nir Bergman (Cannes Official Selection 2020); Dani Rosenberg (Cannes Official Selection 2020); Nadav Lapid (Berlinale winner 2019); David Ofek (Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive, 2019); Yehonatan Indursky (Shtishel); Mihal Brezis and Oded Binun (The Etruscan Smile); Talya Lavie (Zero Motivation); Tom Shoval (Youth) and many others.

 

The new VOD site offers film buffs to see thousands of moments from the School's trailblazing history: its establishment against all odds in 1989; David Lynch historic visit to the the School; uplifting words by honorary fellows President Reuven Rivlin and filmmaker Ronit Elkabetz; parodies about JSFS by satire shows, including Israel's SNL, Eretz Nehederet.

 

Bonus materials include films by Ruthy Pribar (Asia, Tribeca 2020); Keren Margalit (Sleeping Bears, The A Word); Dafna Levin (Euphoria, In Treatment); Prof. Dan Geva (CILECT Lab for Ethics in Cinema); Ra'anan Alexandrowitcz, (Emmy Award winner). There are also custom-made commentaries by former curator at MoMA Larry Kardish, Nadav Lapid and more.

 

The VOD site https://www.vod.jsfs.co.il/ will be open and free for 30 days beginning November 1st 2020. After December 1st 2020, a symbolic fee will go towards scholarships for our students.

 

 

Curator and project initiator, Founding Director of the School, Renen Schorr: "this is the full meal and it is accessible to the students, teachers, and alumni of the School in addition to the wider industry in Israel and abroad to experience the consistent spirit of the School as it has changed over the years. It is my hope that this unique portal will promote a wider conversation about the short film as a genre worthy of discussion and about Sam Spiegel films as a whole and the voices of our alumni, their personal writing and their collective spirit."
