JPC Press Delegation of film critics to cover the Jerusalem Film Festival 2018 (Funded)
Deadline: June 20, 2018
The Jerusalem Press Club (JPC) invites journalists at the beginning of their career to apply for the JPC Press Delegation of film critics to cover the Jerusalem Film Festival (JFF). The JFF will take place at the end of July in Jerusalem, Israel.
Since its establishment in 2013, the Jerusalem Press Club (JPC) has been bringing groups of leading film critics to cover the Jerusalem Film Festival. This is a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity for two young journalists to join a press tour alongside prominent film critics from around the world.
The Jerusalem Press Club (JPC) is the official and exclusive press club in Jerusalem. Offering foreign correspondents everything they need: Access to Israeli decision-makers and experts, great content, top professional facilities, friendly staff, amicable social atmosphere and great cuisine at its Touro Restaurant – all in the most beautiful location in Jerusalem, Mishkenot Sha’ananim.
The JPC was founded in order to be the go-to place for the foreign press based in Israel and for visiting journalists. The JPC aspires to present the array of issues, speakers, voices and places that Israel has to offer. While JPC functions as the main centre for journalists based in Israel, it also hosts missions of visiting journalists who cover areas where Israel has excelled: Film, hi-tech, science, music, literature and more. Thinking about the next generation of journalists, JPC offers a variety of programs to graduate journalism schools. A strong champion of press freedom, JPC has initiated the bi-annual International Conference on the Freedom of the Press, and through its Cartoon-Criticism-Care competition, it has been encouraging youth to express themselves artistically on current issues.
The Jerusalem Press Club covers the expenses of flights (tourist) and accommodation.
