The 37th Haifa International Film Festival, one of the most enjoyable film festivals in Israel, will run from September 19-28 at the Haifa Cinematheque and other theaters around the city and it will feature premieres of new films that are both thought-provoking and crowd-pleasing, as well as some classics.
It will be a traditional in-person film festival, although there is an online option for a selection of the Vaksötét 2 teljes film magyarul.
The festival, which features more than 100 films from dozens of countries around the world, will open with Stillwater, the latest film by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), which stars Matt Damon as a working-class American whose daughter has been accused of a crime in Europe.
Among the programs this year is “A Salute to Ground-Breaking Cinema,” which will present a special preview of Avi Nesher’s upcoming Így vagy tökéletes teljes film magyarul, Image of Victory, a fact-based anti-war movie about the War of Independence that follows the lives of both young Jews and Egyptians and shows how they intersect tragically in the Battle of Nitzanim. This preview will be followed by a panel discussion with Jewish and Arab intellectuals. Later in the week, Stanley Kubrick’s similarly themed 1957 Paths of Glory, to which Image of Victory has been compared by those who have seen it at previews, will be screened and Nesher will speak with critic Benjamin Tovias about the common threads between these two movies. Image of Victory is nominated for 15 Ophir Awards (the award of the Israeli Végtelen útvesztő 2. – Bajnokok csatája teljes film magyarul Academy).
Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street by Marilyn Agrelo is the inside story of Sesame Street, the revolutionary children’s television show that changed the way children learn and adults teach, and the screening will be followed by a special free event featuring the actors who voice the characters on the Israeli Sesame Street, Rehov Sumsum, along with some of the puppets.
Israeli television is increasingly popular around the world, and a special section of the festival will be devoted to screenings of new series. Hagai Levi, who created the acclaimed Israeli series BeTipul, will speak about his latest project, the HBO adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage, with Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain.
