RAMA BURSHTEIN (Director, Writer) won Ophirs (Israeli Oscars) for best film and best director for her first feature, Fill the Void. The film received a total of seven Ophirs as well as critical acclaim when it premiered in competition at the Venice Film Festival where star Hadas Yaron won the Coppa Volpi for best actress. The film was shown at numerous other international film festivals including Sundance, New York and Toronto. It was Israel's official entry for the Best Foreign-Language Oscar.

Before that, Burshtein wrote, directed and produced films for the orthodox community, some of them only for women. She has also taught directing and scriptwriting in various film and television institutions within the orthodox community.

Burshtein was born in New York in 1967, and raised in Israel. She graduated from the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School in Jerusalem in 1994. During those years she became deeply religious and upon her graduation dedicated herself to promoting film as a tool for self-expression in the orthodox community.
