BEZALEL ACADEMY OF ARTS & DESIGN / Department of Screen-Based Arts B.F.A.

The curriculum combines the disciplines of movie-making, video and animation and guides the students towards the development of a sharp outlook and a personal vocabulary. Students create animation, documentary films, personal and experimental films, video art and new media, formulated as artists who command the tools and the medium, expand the boundaries of the language and produce statements and questions possessing social, political, critical, personal and cultural significance.
We aspire to train and develop independent, multidisciplinary and professional movie and animation creators, possessing the ability and desire to develop new artistic fields while breaking through the barriers between art, movie-making, animation and interactive digital media.
