    Originally from Israel, Dekel Berenson completed a mandatory three-year service in the Israeli Defense Forces. In 2001 he went abroad to pursue his education, eventually acquiring a Masters in International Relations from the Central European University in Budapest in 2006, receiving the Best Thesis Award and graduating first in his class. The next ten years of his work in writing, activism, and graphic design took him all over the world, where he explored more than sixty countries. Over the past three years, he has combined his two passions, making artistic films of high quality that bring to light real-world social and humanitarian issues. His second film ASHMINA (2018) won several prizes, including the Best Short Film award at Krakow Film Festival, allowing it to complete for a short Oscar. His third film, ANNA (2019), premiered in competition at Cannes Film Festival.
