The Intellectual Incubator for Documentary Filmmakers at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, formed in conjunction with the Israeli Documentary Filmmakers Forum and the Jerusalem Cinematheque, is taking place this year for the fifth time. It is a platform for thinking through and critiquing the intellectual, social, and cultural contexts in which documentary films are conceived, produced and received. It is also a place for filmmakers and researchers to collaborate, lending filmmaking in Israel greater intellectual depth and creative energy while bringing new questions and approaches to research.
In 2023-2024, the incubator will address
The Challenges of Documenting Local History
The Call for proposals for 2024 will be published soon...
