It’s festival time !

Welcome to our 16th year! Our film committee has created a fantastic lineup of 26 international films to enlighten all ages. We proudly present comedies, political action, thrillers, biographies, history, romance, family, and coming of age stories. We are
bringing 3 filmmakers for post-film discussions, and we open our festival with a rockin’ start on July 10 with the film Rock in the Red Zone. Join us with special guest, musician Avi Vaknin, who performs live. You won’t want to miss the first 3 episodes of the new Israeli hit TV series Fauda, with continued screenings in the fall for our new Sunday Film Series. Closing night, we celebrate Israel with the film In Search of Israeli Cuisine followed by our closing night party and Israeli food tasting.

We thank all of you, our patrons, sponsors, and underwriters, and the William and Sheila Konar Foundation and Rubens Family Foundation for your support of and participation in this premier festival! We are grateful, and can’t wait to see you!
