Israeli film fest to celebrate Jerusalem
Jun 18, 2017-
The 11th iteration of Israeli Film Festival is taking place in three cities around Nepal. Organised jointly by the Embassy of Israel in Nepal and Nepal Film Society, the screening is set to go on the floor at Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu from 21 to 23 June; at OR2K Restaurant in Pokhara from 28 to 30 July; and at the premises of Chamber of Industries in Biratnagar from 6 to 8 July.
The films to be screened at the fest, organisers said, portray the cultural and social aspects of Israeli lifestyle and Jewish tradition, and do so by celebrating the city of Jerusalem. The present edition of the fest is dedicated to the Israeli capital of Jerusalem; this year marks the 50 years of reunification of the city. The screenings will be preceded by a documentary on Jerusalem.
The films to be screened at the fest are: Time of Favor by Joseph Sider; Abulele by Jonathen Geva; Teacher Irena by Itamar Chen; Our Father by Meni Yaish; Apples from the Desert by Matti Hariri and Arik Lubetzky; and Bethlehem by Yuval Adler.
