Katriel Schory

Developing the audience

Katriel Schory has been the director of Israel Film Fund for 17 years and, from this position, he contributed to the financing of 230 films, such as Waltz with Bashir or Lebanon. Schory is one of the most respected figures in the film world and many Jewish and Arab filmmakers in Israel consider him to be a guardian of freedom of expression. During VFF, Schory will have a special master class about the importance of audience development, in which he will also cover the issue of why European films are unable to reach a bigger audience. As he said: „we have a hell lot of films out on the market, but we don’t have enough audience for these films.“
