The Shoham International film festival's mandate is to discover the most exciting and innovative films in the world, therefore, giving a platform to those filmmakers whose voices are unique.

The Festival is in honor of Jacob Rajpurker, the festival director's dad, a film lover, and a military officer who died tragically from a heart attack at the age of 44 before he could make his dreams come true.

Using an online model we will showcase all selected films picking the winners in various categories. All winners and selected projects will receive film festival laurels to display as they please.

We are accepting films with the following criteria Short Films (1-30 min), Featurettes (31min-74 min), and Feature Films (75 min-120 min).

The Festival Director Amir Ragporker has made 2 feature films and a short film which was successful in festivals around the globe. He has written more than 20 feature films and TV series.
