Israeli films at the heart of the Jerusalem Film Fest

Lia van Leer, the founder of the Jerusalem Film Festival, who passed away last March, structured the event so that it would bring much-needed attention to Israeli filmmakers, and this year’s festival will continue that tradition.

The 32nd Jerusalem Film Festival will take place from July 9-19 at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, and the Israeli film competitions will be front and center.

Many of Israel’s high-profile directors premiered their earliest works at the Jerusalem Film Festival, and because of that the Israeli competitions are one of the most buzzed-about parts of the festival.
