Arkadij Khaet (*1991 in Bălți) is a director and screenwriter. In 2020 he achieved a major international success with Masel Tov Cocktail.

In 2022, the documentary film Jüdischer Humor - Schluss mit lustig (Jewish Humor - Enough is Funny) appeared on Arte with his collaboration.

Naomi Levari (*1978) sees critical and pluralistic discourse as an essential feature of the JFBB. She is co-founder of the Tel Aviv production company Black Sheep Film Productions Ltd. whose films (including Chained, Stripped, Fig Tree, One Week and a Day) have screened at countless festivals (including Berlinale, Cannes, Venice IFF). Levari's artistic aspiration for the films she produces is that unseen and unheard voices in society receive attention.
