Every year the International Talent Workshop incites greater interest in different European countries. This year, there were more than 80 young film enthusiasts and future professionals out of 25 countries from 5 different continents, applying for the International Film Workshop. The selection committee had a difficult task to select the 10 best participants.

The International Film Workshop is a continuation of the tradition started in 2008, at the 2nd Jewish Film Festival. During this educational programme the participants will have the opportunity to learn about all phases of making a film – from editing the scenario to shooting, film editing and, eventually, screening – with the assistance of reputable domestic and foreign lecturers.
