Jerusalem film fund to pour NIS 8 million into movies and TV
The fund is Israel’s first municipal film foundation. It seeks to improve Jerusalem’s image through movies and television shows that take place in the city, and to aid the city’s film industry.
The Jerusalem Development Authority’s Film and Television Fund will invest about NIS 8 million this year in 12 new film and television projects. Among them are maiden films by four directors, three full-length animated films and an animated television series. The 12 projects were chosen out of 109 that applied.
