Featuring musical guests, special panels, appearances by actors and directors, and a wealth of films, the Other Israel Film Festival (December 1 - 8, 2016, multiple venues across New York City) offers a bountiful slate of film, art, and culture from Israeli and Arab people. This being the 10th installment of the fest is a momentous occasion. “We are thrilled to mark ten years of curating dynamic and inclusive forums for exploration of tough themes related to Israeli society,” says Ravit Turjeman, Director of the Other Israel Film Festival & Fund. “As in past years, we will continue to encourage cinematic expression and creativity that truly celebrate the humanity and daily lives of Arab citizens and other minority groups who are most often overlooked by mainstream culture.”
Films (many of which are US premieres) being shown include:
Special events during the festival include a short films selection, opening and closing receptions, as well as a concert from Tamer Nafar with Marcus Mumford. Panel discussion on the power of film includes special guests Michael Moore, Udi Aloni, Chelsey Berlin, Tony Copti, and Maya Zinshtein
