11th Annual Other Israel FIlm Festival: Zoos, DJs, Bikes. & Borders

In Between

Now in its 11th year, the Other Israel Film Festival returns with a slate of films tackling difficult topics and shining a light on what life is like for young Israelis and Palestinians. The festival runs from November 2nd to 9th at the JCC Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Ave.) and other venues in NYC.  "This year, we focused our mission statement to present the festival as a platform for taking a deeper look and engaging with challenging perspectives surrounding Israel and its neighbors," says Isaac Zablocki, Director of the festival. "These films are the foundation for crucial conversations and inspire the community to grapple with universal themes of diversity and inclusion."

Films include Domino Street, a sort of twist on the Bicycle Thief as a boy goes in search of his stolen bike, A Land Without Borders, which addresses the hard and lengthy battle for a two-state solution for the West Bank, and In Between, about young Palestinian women in Tel Aviv navigating their lives around DJing, finding work, coming out, and living day to day.
