The Berlin International Film Festival will hold a tribute to mark the 30th anniversary of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School


6 student films from 1993-2015 will be screened under the title Scarred Generation

The Panorama Section will screen two additional films from

the "Sam Spiegel Workshop":

The Day After I'm Gone (Nimrod Eldar, Israel), Photograph (Ritesh Batra, India) 

 

The 69th Berlin International Film Festival will hold a tribute to mark the 30th anniversary of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School and its accomplishments. Under the title, Scarred Generation, six outstanding school films will screen in the Generation section. This is the second time that the Berlinale has paid tribute to the JSFS, having held a tribute in 2004 to mark the school's 15th anniversary.

 

Dozens of the best of the school's films will be screened during 2019-20 in leading international festivals, at Jewish film festivals, LGBT film festivals, women's film festival, youth film festivals and more. 

The six films that will be screened in the tribute this year are Bedouin Sand (Omri Levy), Diploma (Yaelle Kayam), How I Killed Rabin (Michael Alalu) A Different War (Nadav Gal), Lookout (Noa Gusakov) and Mushkie (Aleeza Chanowitz).

 

The premiere screening of the tribute will take place on Feb 12, 2019 in the presence of filmmakers Michael Alalu, Noa Gusakov and JSFS founding director Renen Schorr.

 

 

Two additional films from the "Sam Spiegel Workshop" will be screening at the prestigious Panorama section: the feature The Day After I'm Gone by director Nimord Eldar and producers Eitan Mansuri and Jonathan Doweck which won the Sam Spiegel Alumni First Feature Fund; and the Indian film Photograph, by Ritesh Batra which was developed at the 2014 Sam Spiegel International Film Lab.

 

Notable JSFS graduate and teacher Nadav Lapid is screening his newest film Synonyms in the main competition. His second film The Kindergarten Teacher was developed at the Sam Spiegel International Film Lab where it won first prize.

 

Renen Schorr: "at the 2019 Berlinale, and all during 2019-20, we will be screening the final chapter of the Sam Spiegel Graduates Trilogy - The Voice of Ahmad, which joins Footsteps in Jerusalem and Voice Over. Additionally we will screen 30 selected best shorts of all times. There is indeed much to celebrate".

 

In 2018, and for the second year in a row, the JSFS was on the Hollywood Reporter's list of 15 leading film schools outside the US.
