Yigal Amir film will not play at Jerusalem Film Festival

After an emergency meeting at the Culture and Sports Ministry, the Jerusalem International Film Festival has agreed not to screen the film "Beyond the Fear," a documentary of Yigal Amir who assassinated Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.

The meeting was held between Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev, Noa Regev, CEO of the Jerusalem Cinematheque and the Jerusalem International Film Festival, Philippa Kowarsky, board member of the festival, and professionals from the ministry.

Regev gave the film festival organizers an ultimatum, telling them to remove the film from the film festival roster or have their funding revoked by the ministry.
