The Israeli Film Festival this year is bringing only the best films from one of the world’s biggest cultural hubs.
Palace Cinemas and the Australia Israel Cultural Exchange presents the Israeli Film Festival for 2014.
The festival is set to feature films from all genres from comedies to dramas and everything in between.
Now in it’s 11th year, the Film Festival is introducing short films to its established repertoire of documentaries.
The films shown represent the diverse society of Israel and explores the stories behind the people from one of the worlds most multi-racial countries.
Albert Dadon, Chairman of the Australia Israel Cultural Exchange says, “We have been spoiled for choice this year with Israel producing world-class films which are completely unique, and entirely stunning on so many levels.”
The quality of films coming out of Israel has improved greatly over the past decade, with five Israeli films featured at the Cannes this year including Camera D’Or winner Self Made which opens this year’s Festival.
Only the best have been picked to be shown at the Film Festival that represent this growing strength of the Israeli cinema industry including prizewinners from a number of prestigious festivals including Cannes, Sundance and Jerusalem, as well as winners from Docaviv, Haifa, Tel Aviv SIFF and the Ophirs (the Israeli ‘Oscars’).
Palaca Centro Cinema will house the Festival over August 20-27.
Tickets go on sale July 22 from the Palace Centro website.
