Mya Kaplan's short film, "Night Visit", has been accepted to the 74th Cannes Film Festival, as part of the The Cinéfondation Selection, which is dedicated to supporting the up and coming generation of filmmakers. Created in 1998 under the initiative of Gilles Jacob, the Cinéfondation, sometimes called "the head hunter" of the festival, is dedicated to young creators. This is the fourth time in the past five years that a film from the Steve Tisch School of Film and Television has been included in the Cinéfondation Selection.
"Night Visit" (25') was written, directed and shot by Mya Kaplan, as part of the "Heroine 2" project, which dealt with female bravery. It deals with the search for love, with the uncovering of a disturbing sexual incident, and with its protagonist's struggle to reconcile the two. The film was produced by Efrat Cohen and Gaudeamus Production Ltd for the Steve Tisch School of Film and Television. The project was created by Mia Dreifus and Michal Vinik, in order to support young female creators. The film was co-produced by the Gesher Multicultural Film Fund and supported by the Israeli Film Council, The Ministry of Culture and Sports, and the Blavatnik Student Film Production Fund.
