NFCT wins awards at Hot Docs and Docaviv festivals

Congratulations to filmmakers Asaf Sudry and Tali Shemesh, whose documentary Death in the Terminal, about an Eritrean asylum seeker lynched in Be’er Sheba after being mistaken for a terrorist, won Best Mid-Length Documentary Award at the prestigious international Hot Docs Festival.

Another NFCT film earned praise: Wall, a movie by Moran Ifergan developed in NFCT’s first Greenhouse Women program, won the Best Israeli Movie award in Tel Aviv’s prestigious Docaviv Documentary film festival earlier this month.
