About Lana Melman

CEO, Lana Melman is a leading expert and commentator on the cultural boycott effort against Israel, a Hollywood liaison, and a professional speaker and writer.

She has spoken with almost a thousand artists and/or their representatives and was instrumental in preventing numerous cancellations of scheduled concerts and tours in Israel.

Together with other high-profile members of the entertainment community, Lana circulated a statement in support of Israel’s right to defend herself, which was ultimately signed by over 300 Hollywood luminaries, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Seth Rogen, Kelsey Grammer, Sylvester Stallone, Roseanne Barr, and Sarah Silverman.

Lana also worked closely with Scarlett Johansson‘s representative during the SodaStream/Super Bowl controversy, and with Alicia Keys’ team when she received extreme boycott pressure in connection with her performance in Tel Aviv.

An entertainment attorney, Lana worked in both business and creative capacities at CBS, Warner Bros., Columbia Pictures, and Paramount, as well as a writer and executive producer.

Lana Melman, it was a perspective I’ve never heard before, that BDS’s cultural boycott is a form of censorship.
