We believe that the world of culture and cinematic art must provide a forum for all voices that make up Israeli society.
We're also aware that the opportunity is not equally provided to everyone. Our aim is to locate gifted teenagers who come from the economic, social and geographical periphery, and carefully pave their way to the heart of the Israeli world of creation and film-making.
All talented young men and women who are willing to work hard, have the right to become the artists and craftspeople they aspire to be.
They meet us when they're 16 years old and we expose them to the world of cinematic arts across a whole decade of their lives, expanding their knowledge and supporting them emotionally and financially, until they complete their academic studies. When they graduate, we assist in integrating them into the Israeli world of creation.
