I feel privileged for the opportunity to study documentary filmmaking in a place so diverse as Tel Aviv University. Being exposed to different realities through people inside and outside of the university opens one's eyes.
The course gave us resources and assistance to materialize our ideas and tell our truths. Their links with the industry itself through classes and workshops with Israeli and international filmmakers are invaluable. It's incredible to immerse in society's multiple perspectives and explore them through documentary film, and the MFA in Documentary Cinema facilitates this.

My time at Tel Aviv University was an enriching, exciting and enthralling experience. The cultural part of the experience was out of the world. We went for trips around Israel, including Jerusalem, Golan Heights, and Eilat (we visited all three seas: Mediterranean Sea, Dead Sea, and the Red Sea!). The food, language, culture, and general way of life were different and something that I had never experienced before. I bonded with people from Israel and countries around the world, which in turn exposed me to diverse cultures and traditions. I learned a lot about myself, which helped me grow as a person.

When I was not in class, I explored the miraculous city of Tel Aviv and basked in the sun on Tel Aviv's world-famous beaches. TAU enabled me to forge lifelong relationships and provided me with an invaluable knowledge base. I will always recall fondly the many life-changing experiences I had at TAU.
