This is our pride and joy. Our outstanding students attend the finest schools of art and filmmaking in Israel. From the age of 16 we accompany and encourage them to aim as high as possible. Still, they make it on their own thanks to their native talents and personal stories, thanks to their diligence, determination and perseverance. Just a few years ago they didn't believe it could happen, and here they are, on the way to the heart of the Israeli world of film-making creation.
The foundation staff saw me from afar and up close, they stuck with me and guided me throughout. It's a family.

My friends at Looking Forward became my family, the instructors and directors became my parents and big brothers and sisters, and my agitated soul learned to relax and understand that everyone here is in the same position. That we're here to dream and realize our dreams together.
I'm now 21 years old, a second-year student at the Yoram Loewenstein Acting Studio, and I live in Tel Aviv. None of this could have happened without them. I give thanks every day that you believed in me wholeheartedly since the day we met. Sometimes dreams come true, and I'm making mine come true!

In my opinion the most powerful thing is their faith in us, in the baggage we bring from our home lives, and the ability to leverage all that into creative work, into a strong sense of independence and confidence.
In a world where the artistic and creative professions are highly categorized and the path is paved for people from particular backgrounds, the foundation provides an opportunity for other voices to be heard
and take part in the artistic arena.
