The Maaleh Film School maintains a library of 200+ films, produced as graduate projects. The films address the depth and complexity of life in Israel and Jewish identity, examining the daily challenges facing its citizens, defense forces, minorities and outsiders.  These short (15-30 minute) dramas and documentaries are a priceless, cultural and educational resource suitable for communal programs worldwide. The films are used as "triggers" for conferences, panel discussions, workshops and classroom presentations, promoting a dynamic and authentic dialogue with Israelis and communities around the world.

All Maaleh films are subtitled in English.  Many are also available with subtitles in French, Spanish and Russian.

The films are suitable for teen and adult audiences.
