Nechama Rivlin was very much at home at the Cinematheque and at the Jerusalem Film Festival and was a source of inspiration and encouragement for many cultural and creative people in Israel. The new prize reflects Nechama’s deep connection with creative people and her extraordinary love of cinema, and encourages filmmakers at the beginning of their careers according to her beliefs and in her way.”
