Shira Pinczuk is a free-lance journalist and award-winning filmmaker. She was the BJTC Journalist of the Year in 2011 and her work has been screened at national, European and international film festivals.
She is currently an AVPHD student at Goldsmith University of London, working on theory of filmmaking and the exploration of realistic documentary in conflict areas. Her research reflects on borders as physical, psychological and political entities, and filming across borders and boundaries. Her work has brought her to close contact with several ethno-religious minorities in the Middle–East, such as the Bedouins, the Samaritans and the Druze people.
She continues to maintain both her academic activity at the University of Winchester, where she leads the program in Journalism, and the field activity and academic cooperation in Israel.
