The Fishermen at International Student Film Festival

Animated film The Fishermen by student of Prague FAMU Bara Anna Stejskalova was chosen for the International competition at the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival. We wish her good luck!

The Fishermen by Bára Anna Stejskalová (2016, 10 min)
Film and TV school of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Czech Republic

A story about fisherman, who pulled a skeleton out of the frozen lake. He tries to escape from the skeleton, so he hides in the dark, where he looks for comfort in cheap entertaintment. Yet the reality scratches on the window and fisherman´s hiding place quickly becomes a place full of nightmares. Manipulation, humanity, puppetry - the main themes of this film.

The International Student Film Festival is a long-time running cultural event, one that bears much significance on the film industry in Israel and it is the largest get-together of film students from across the world reaching all Israeli regions. Students from 30 different countries arrive to Tel Aviv with their films and stay with Israeli students. More than 250 films from over 70 films schools from all over the world, the famous filmmakers who attend the festival and the special atmosphere that surrounds it. It is a week filled with young and subversive cinema, fascinating cinematic events, workshops, master classes, conventions, parties and exhibitions.

The festival is the center stage for the Short Film. The international competition displays a panoramic view of the inner world of young filmmakers across the world; the Israeli competition presents the future generation’s up and coming talents and the independent competition introduces films that were done outside of the academic environment.

The festival encourages young filmmakers and is known in Israel as the place where the next filmmaking generation in Israel and the world is discovered. This Israeli festival promotes equality, pluralism and multiculturalism through social activities and festive screenings across the country.
