One of the highlights of the film festival circuit in Israel is always the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival, which will take place this year from May 31 to June 7 at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque.

While it’s billed as a student film festival, it’s become much more than that, as some of the top international directors will present their work and give classes to Israeli film students (as well as the general public). Celebrating its 16th year, the festival will show 250 films (mainly student productions) from 40 countries, and features three competitions: international films, Israeli films and Middle Eastern films.
