Five of his plays were produced professionally and received prestigious Israeli prizes such as the King David Award. Mr. Preis has had six screenplays produced for television and film including co-author of Beyond the Walls as co-author, which was nominated for the Academy Award in the Best Foreign Film Category in 1984. Mr. Preis continued for several years writing for the Israeli theater and film industry, and is now producing video documentaries in the United States. His feature length video documentary The Case of Jonathan Pollard received the New Filmmaker Award at the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival, and was selected for the Jewish Festivals of Toronto, Vancouver and Philadelphia, and the Dallas Video Festival, the Fort Lauderdale International Film & Video Festival and the George Lindsey UNA Film Festival. His documentaries Cheerleaders and Bet Herut: the End of the Beginning (which is currently in distribution with the Cinema Guild) have won awards and been shown in national festivals. P.
