A project aimed at producing short films inspired by the landscapes of the Negev and Arava regions. Firstly, a group of young directors is brought to tour the area, receive an impression of its vistas, people and atmosphere, and be inspired to write a script. A month and a half later, the scripts are handed in; three are chosen and their production begins. The finished films make their debuts at the upcoming edition of the Arava IFF.

Project producers: Eyal and Tinker Shiray. The project is funded by the Israeli Film Fund, Gesher Fund, Middle Arava Regional Council
