Margarita Linton wins DocAviv Mayor of Tel Aviv Award

Thrilled to announce that our alumna and teacher, Margarita Linton, has won the DocAviv 2022 prize for Best Debut Film. The jury statement reads: "This bold and creative debut feature appears to use cinema in an inventively therapeutic manner that showed great promise to this jury. Choosing to approach the subject of an artist and their work through the complicating factor of the director's own proximity to this artist, the film offers both a dual portrait narrative and a struggle for authorship and agency that exhibits real potential all the way to the film's closing revelations. Margarita and Yaniv Linton, with this debut work, have marked themselves out as a directorial duo to watch in coming years."
