Honing their craft

 The 17th TLV International Student Film Festival, which opens today and runs until June 6 at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque, is different from all the other film festivals in Israel because “it was initiated by the students of Tel Aviv University, and its prime goal is to bring students and their films from all over the world to Israel,” says Talia Bernstein, who, along with Roni Shamis, is the festival’s co-director.

Founded in 1986, the festival was held every other year until 2012, when, according to Bernstein, the volume of high-quality submissions convinced its management that it should be held every year.

“Students from around the world needed this platform to show their work,” she says.
