The Galilee ‘Docu Leaders’ Program
This is the 6th year of this film-making program, initiated and run by documentary film-maker Vered Osman, who lives in the Western Galilee’s Kibbutz Eilon. This special program brings together 20 teens from communities across the Galilee and provides the instruction and guidance on the creation of documentary films that are dedicated to their vision of daily life in the border region. The aim of this project is to enable young, ambitious film makers with the ability to engage in documentary film making and to promote the concept that, given the same professional guidance, Israel’s periphery region can produce leading Israeli film professionals.
The ‘Docu-Leaders’ productions are screened in schools and community centers all over the Galilee and some are submitted for participation in global documentary film festivals. This year, for the second time, one of the Docu-Leaders short films was screened at a prestigious film festival in New York.
