Other Israel Film Festival

Other Israel Film Festival

13th Annual Other Israel Film Festival: November 14-21, 2019

The Other Israel Film Festival, founded in 2007, presents cinema that inspires conversation and takes an in-depth look into Israeli and Palestinian societies and underrepresented populations in Israel. It is an annual weeklong festival of award-winning international films, as well as engaging conversations on hot topics. These films and interactions inform and intrigue audiences, and illuminate the diversity of Israeli society. All screenings are followed by Q+As with filmmakers and other special guests. In addition to the screenings, we present panel discussions related to the films and their topics, opening and closing night galas, and other special events.
