Managing Director of Greenhouse MENA and Greenhouse Women
Sigal Yehuda has been involved with Greenhouse since its inception in 2007 and is largely responsible for the evolution of the program into a prestigious and internationally recognized development initiative for fostering the talents of the most promising filmmakers in the region.
In 2010, together with the Greenhouse four international partners, Sigal initiated a development program for European and Mediterranean filmmakers to encourage the exploration of racism and human rights themes. At the same time, she led the planning process for the current program targeting cinema school graduates and emerging filmmakers in the Middle East and North Africa. In addition to coordinating responsibilities between many multinational organizations, Sigal also develops creative collaboration opportunities between different entities in Europe, North America and the Southern Mediterranean region, which is the avenue through which the filmmakers are able to achieve an international audience and financing for their projects. As of 2014, Sigal is also responsible for leading the NFCT’s new Greenhouse Program for Jewish and Arab Women Documentary Filmmakers in Israel, which is modeled on our international Greenhouse program.
Prior to her current position, Sigal established a production and post-production company in Greece, where she produced and co-directed several films. In 2010, she co-produced the feature length documentary, The Black Bus (Berlinale 2009), by Israeli filmmaker Anat Zuria about women’s oppression in Orthodox Jewish society, and the documentary film, The Hangman (IDFA 2010), by Natalie Braun and Avigail Sperber, about the man who hanged Adolph Eichmann.
