The AICE Israeli Film Festival has announced its daring 2015 programme, featuring 35 titles across six categories, screening in four cities from August 17 - 30 at Palace Cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth.
Award-winning Israeli film director Joseph Cedar has won another award.
Cedar, whose 2007 film Beaufort was nominated for best foreign-language film at the Academy Awards in 2008, was recognised for his work in promoting global Jewish unity at the 2011 NADAV Jewish Peoplehood Award in Jaffa.
The Australian Israel Cultural Exchange (AICE) Israeli Film Festival is thrilled to return to where it all began 13 years ago, screening at Cinema Nova in Melbourne from September 14 - 25 and for the first
time at the Randwick Ritz in Sydney from September 15 - 25.
From rollicking comedies to sensitive dramas, from riveting, political documentaries to hot-blooded romance, the AICE Israeli Film Festival presents the best of contemporary Israeli cinema to Australian audiences. Produced by Palace Cinemas and the Australia Israel Cultural Exchange, the Festival is the only Australia-wide showcase for Israeli film. Now in its 11th year, it continues to grow and diversify in 2014 with the inclusion of exceptional short films perfectly paired with some of the outstanding documentaries on offer.
Social and political commentaries; tales of love, loss and redemption; stories of history, friendship and unlikely alliances: 2013 sees the AICE Israeli Film Festival celebrating its first decade in Australia with one of its strongest programs yet.
