What's up in Sapir?

Sapir Brings Cinema to Negev Evacuees. While thousands of families from the Western Negev shelter in temporary locations, Sapir College plans to bring to them new and innovative cultural events. So, this year, the School of Audio and Visual Arts will take its 22nd annual Cinema South Film Festival on the road, visiting evacuee communities around Israel. From March 2nd to 27th, the itinerant cinematic event will screen in locations ranging from Eilat to Herzliya, from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, and from the Dead Sea to Rahat.
