Raindance MA alumni Lia Tarachansky won the Women in Film Award at the Toronto Smartphone Film Festival for her short film Ocean.

Lia Tarachansky is a Russian-Israeli video journalist who reported on the attack, on the rockets Gazan militant groups launched in return, and on the rise of a pro-war movement in Israel.

Ocean happens at the time when, in 2014, the Israeli army began another round of bombardment on the Gaza Strip. The film was entirely shot with an iPhone 5.
