The Incubator for Documentary Filmmakers

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 fourth 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 2022, the incubator will operate as a residency program for artists, in collaboration with Mifal HaPais, and will address the issue of Israel in the Middle East and Jewish-Palestinian relations in Israel and the Occupied Territories
