Maaleh School of Film and Television, Jerusalem
The Maaleh School of Film and Television is situated in the heart of Jerusalem. Its unique, cutting-edge films build bridges across all sectors of the Jewish world, fostering deeper understanding and dialogue between religious and secular Jews. Today, more than 100 talented young people are studying at Maaleh at any one time. Some are engaged in a rigorous, four-year curriculum in directing and producing, while others are enrolled in a two-year scriptwriting program. Maaleh also uses film to enrich the lives of some of Israel’s most marginalized populations, creating a first-of-its-kind video therapy program for at-risk youth, Ethiopian immigrants, terror victims, and adults with special needs.
