Information Shorts Documentary Competition: First Place An Attack Without a Terrorist Director and Producer: Roni Livneh Jury Statement: The film sheds an enlightening factual light on an explosive affair that agitated Israeli society and succeeds in discovering the truth, despite the attempts to hide the facts by law enforcement officials, while demonstrating a fine journalistic investigation.

Information Shorts Documentary Competition: Special Mention Burning Democracy Director: Yaniv Berman Producer: Josh Yablon Jury Statement: "Burning Democracy" is awarded Special Mention for its commitment to historical and social documentation, in real time, and for having the courage to be with a camera near the dramatic events that shaped the story of the State of Israel in 2023.

The film succeeds in combining a personal story with a broader narrative of a social struggle for victims of sects, using diverse cinematic means. The film succeeds in conveying important and relevant messages to the theme of the festival - solidarity with victims, and a call for joint action for social change and preventing harm to others. And on the other hand, the film has another important message, that being victimized by a cult can happen to anyone. This film was chosen for first place because it combines important issues with quality film work, it is a film that motivates, and deals with a place of social change and does not focus on the victims. The youth who join the performance are presented as partners in the struggle on the subject, and the combination of many arts adds a layer to the film, the painting, the play, the singing, the performance in protest, all together create a relevant, interesting, high-quality movie on a cinematic level and even exciting.

The film raises awareness of the difficulty experienced by people with mental limitations, and shows that they need society's support, understanding and help. We appreciate this original work, the cinematography and editing as well as the choice of characters. The involvement of the young filmmaker was authentic and the decision to use actors playing certain scenes based on his research enriched the entire film. Information

His students are refugees and asylum-seekers from different African countries. Two years ago, Rotem founded a youth running group for refugees who fled their homelands and are living in Israel with their families but lack legal status. At first running was just a social activity for the students, but it quickly became a way of life for them and way for them to fight for their civil rights. Two of the more talented and prominent members of the team are Rachel Gebretsadik, 16, from Eritrea and Ramzi AbdulJaber, 17, from Darfur. Since Israel does not recognize Rachel and Ramzi as refugees, they don’t have equal rights and are not recognized as Israel’s champions. Rotem and his students set out on a struggle to secure them a place and a status of their own, aiming to pull them out of the margins of Israeli society. ​
