The Miami Jewish Film Festival (MJFF) and the Jerusalem Film Workshop are teaming up to grant one South Florida student a full scholarship to attend a six-week workshop in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Film Workshop runs June 25-August 6 and helps students hone their cinematography, directing, editing and screenwriting skills through master classes, location tours and industry networking.

“We’re thrilled to launch this inaugural partnership with the Jerusalem Film Workshop that will provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity for a South Florida filmmaker to incubate their most audacious ideas in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking while also offering indispensable lessons in craft,” said Igor Shteyrenberg, director of the 19 year-old MJFF, which is presented by the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education and the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

Applicants must be between the ages of 19-25 and must submit a letter stating why they want to attend the workshop along with a portfolio of finished or in-progress work, including screenplays, short films, photographs or other artwork demonstrating an artistic passion or purpose.

Entries must be submitted by Friday May 20 via email to info@miamijewishfilmfestival.org.
