Migrants, women and Israel win big at Berlinale

The 66th Berlinale, the Berlin International Film Festival, concluded on Saturday and Sunday with ceremonies in which the prizes of the various juries were awarded, and movies spotlighting Israel, women and the migrant crisis received some of the festival’s most important awards.

The Berlinale has always welcomed Israeli cinema.

While the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement has made a lot of headlines this past year, the reception of Israeli films at the Berlinale has always been the reverse of a boycott – it’s more like an embrace.
