Steve Tisch to head Israeli film festival.

Steve Tisch, one of the most successful producers in the motion picture industry, will chair the 16th Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival at Tel Aviv University May 31-June 7, 2014.

Tisch is a partner at Escape Artists Productions and chairman of the New York Giants is the only person with both an Academy Award and a Super Bowl ring.

Tisch helped launch Tom Cruise’s career with the sleeper hit” Risky Business,” and his credits with Escape Artists include The Pursuit of Happyness, The Weather Man, Seven Pounds, Knowing, The Taking of Pelham 123, The Back-Up Plan, and Hope Springs.

He has been involved with the Giants since his father, Preston Robert Tisch, purchased 50 percent of the franchise in 1991. Tisch helped win the successful bid to bring Super Bowl XLVIII to MetLife Stadium in February.

“Our students will have the privilege of learning from Mr. Tisch, a role model of accomplishment and an internationally recognized figure in the film industry,” said Prof. Joseph Klafter, president of Tel Aviv University.

The Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival is the largest in the world and this year will begin as an annual instead of a bi-annual event.

Produced by more than 100 student volunteers, it showcases promising young directors from over 40 countries.
