Tamar Kay's debut film, The Mute's House, has won several International awards for Best Short Documentary this year. Tamar has directed and edited numerous short films that were screened in many festivals and won awards, both locally and internationally. 

Or Sinai was the winner this past June at the Cannes Film Festival for Best Student Film, prevailing over more than 2,000 other entries from 227 film schools around the world. Her film, Anna, stars Evgenia Dodina, one of Israel's most revered actresses. We welcome both filmmakers with special thanks to the The Schusterman Visiting Israeli Artists Program.

Looking forward to celebrating together!
