Renen Schorr

Renen Schorr is a film director, screenwriter and producer.


Schorr, who grew up in Tel Aviv, was attracted to the theater from a young age. He played the role of Artful Dodger in Habima's national production of Oliver! and the Crown Prince in Giora Godick's troupe production of The King and I. During his army years he served as a military combat correspondent for the army's weekly Bamahane. In 1974 he was nominated for the Sokolov Journalism Prize - the Israeli equivalent of the Pulitzer - for a series of articles about battles for the Golan Heights in the Yom Kippur War.


Schorr studied filmmaking at Tel Aviv University and worked as an assistant to the prolific director Uri Zohar. In 1979, with a grant from the Israel-America Cultural Foundation, he apprenticed in the U.S. as assistant director/observer to directors John Cassavetes and Paul Mazursky and worked in Los Angeles with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Steve Shagan.
