Maaleh Film School

The Maaleh Film School is situated in the heart of Jerusalem. It is a boutique film school devoted to exploring the intersection of Judaism, Israeli society and modern life.

Israel

Maaleh’s unique, cutting-edge films build bridges across all sectors of the Jewish world, fostering deeper understanding and dialogue between religious and secular Jews.  Many Jewish organizations and educational institutions across the globe have discovered Maaleh as a priceless teaching resource. Thousands of Birthright students, Federation mission participants, and community members from North America, Europe and Asia come to Maaleh each year to take part in specially designed programs.   In the classroom and in the community, the films are a catalyst for discussing deep issues of Jewish and Israeli identity.  And they have become a powerful way to inspire young Jews disconnected from their heritage. .

Maaleh graduates are shaping the future of the Israeli film and television industry, and beyond.   Today, more than 100 talented young people are studying at Maaleh at any one time. Some are engaged in a rigorous, four-year curriculum in directing and producing. Other students study in our two-, year scriptwriting program.  Maaleh graduates are leading the way in the Israeli film and television industry. They are producing films and teaching film, a high school major in Israel, in locations throughout the country. Maaleh graduates have also created some of Israel’s most popular television programs i.e. Srugim.  Maaleh also uses film to enrich the lives of some of Israel’s most marginalized populations, creating a first-of-its-kind VideoTherapy Program for at-risk youth, Ethiopian immigrants, terror victims and adults with special needs.
