"A High Standard in Holocaust Cinema"

Fifteen Years of the Avner Shalev Award

Since 2005, fifteen film directors have won the Avner Shalev Award for Artistic Achievement in Holocaust-Related Film, endowed by Leon and Michaela Constantiner. The prize, which was presented at the International Jerusalem Film Festival, has enabled Yad Vashem to set a high bar for Holocaust cinema, while positioning the Visual Center as an arbiter of audience awareness and sophistication.
