The American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the organization that gives out the Academy Awards, which has promised to diversify its ranks, extended invitations on July 1 to 842 members of the film industry from 59 countries, four of whom were Israelis.

The four were documentary film director Mor Loushy, who made Censored Voices and The Oslo Diaries; cinematographer Avner Shahaf, who has worked on many Israeli and international productions including Zero Days and The Gatekeepers; and producers Osnat Handelsman-Keren and Talia Kleinhendler, whose films include Synonyms, the movie directed by Nadav Lapid that won the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival this year.
