Steve Tisch to Chair World’s Largest Student Film Fest in Tel Aviv

Steve Tisch, veteran producer and exec VP of the New York Giants, will chair Israel’s 16th Tel Aviv Student Film Festival from May 31 to June 7.  The largest student film fest in the world is based as Tel Aviv University, and starting this year will be held every year instead of biannually. The fest will screen 250 short films from 40 countries.

“Our students will have the privilege of learning from Mr. Tisch, a role model of accomplishment and an internationally recognized figure in the film industry,” notes Prof. Joseph Klafter, president of Tel Aviv University.

With past judges and speakers such as Sarah Polley; Robert Wise, Jim Sheridan, Paul Schrader, Emir Kusturica, Arnon Milchan and Roger Corman, the festival’s previous winning filmmakers include Thomas Vinterberg, Francois Ozon and Nir Bergman.

Tisch has three films scheduled for release over the next year: “Sex Tape,” “The Equalizer” and “The Business Trip.”

This year’s student festival directors are Talia Bernstein and Roni Shamiss.
