An evening in memory of Micha Shagrir a year after his death took place at the Jerusalem Cinematheque on February 25, 2016, under the auspices of the Austrian Embassy in Israel. Filmmakers, supporters, family and friends filled the auditorium as we launched the Shagrir Collection website. For the first time, the audience got a peek at the website and some of the highlights of the collection, which have undergone preservation and digitalization. In addition, the evening also included interviews with key figures from the world of Israeli cinema who were filmed especially for this event talking about Micha and what he meant to them
