I'm making films to try and understand the world better, that's it.
My name is Dani Tenenbaum, and I'm a storyteller,
VR filmmaker and an award-winning filmmaker.
I attended the "Minshar for Art" film school in Tel Aviv, Israel, class of 2010, and graduated with an honorable mention.
My thesis film 'Guides' participated in several big festivals and won Best of Fest at the Indieworks screening series in NYC.
I also won the cinematography award in the 2012 48hours film project in NY for filming "Zoe."
Both my feature films - Landing Up and A New Christmas - are now available on digital platforms like iTunes/Amazon Prime/Google play and select VOD platforms.
After directing Landing Up, I started a directors' collective called The Sandbox, a "gym" for directors if you will.
I'm also passionate about using filmmaking in a therapeutic way. I work with The Patton Veterans Project and "I Was There Film Workshops" as a filmmaker/instructor where we do week-long film workshops for soldiers dealing with PTS, teaching them how to use filmmaking to re-create their narrative and tell their story how THEY want to tell it.
We work on dealing with the trauma in a creative, healing way.
