Tonight’s Ophir Awards likely to reward crowd-pleasing films

The Ophir Awards, the prizes of the Israeli Academy of Film, will be given out in a ceremony in Ashdod tonight, which will be broadcast on Channel 10.

The reason anyone outside the Israeli movie industry cares about these awards is that the winner becomes Israel’s official choice to be considered for one of the five nominations for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

This is arguably the most competitive Oscar category.
