AICE Israeli Film Festival

5 September 2017 - 17 September 2017

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.

The program for this year is a top selection of the best the contemporary Israeli film industry has to offer. It features entries from leading Israeli sales agents – Israeli Films, GO2 Films, Cinephil – a range of production houses, including United King Productions, Transfix Films, Laila Films – and several independent film makers.

Every film you see this year is in the competition and the line-up features a range of genres – romantic comedies, a Holocaust mystery, a Bedouin family drama, a Polish/Israeli horror film and several new independent movies. It’s a program that spans the old and the new – with performances from veterans of the stage and screen – Gila Almagor, Oded Teomi, Devora Keidar – to some of the new and upcoming faces and voices of the future.

Israel’s energetic documentary industry, the envy of many countries is also well represented this year. Plucked from the international festival circuit including Israel’s main documentary event, Doc Aviv, some of Israel’s top documentary filmmakers will also compete for the $25,000 award.
