AICE Israeli Film Festival 2013

This year the AICE Israeli Film Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary and will visit Brisbane for a 2nd year at Palace Centro Cinemas! In marking this decade milestone we expand the festival to include two new cities – Canberra & Byron Bay, and an additional venue in Melbourne (Kino Cinemas).

In 2013 we bring you one of our strongest programmes yet – with an exceptional selection of 15 award-winning feature films and documentaries. The films screening at this year’s festival explore the myriad of stories emerging from one of the most diverse and multi-racial countries in the world. Many are shaped by politics, many are personal - but overwhelmingly they celebrate the stories of people’s lives.

Highlights of this year’s program include Opening Night selection The Ballad of The Weeping Spring (dir. Beni Torati), described as an Israeli ‘Magnificent Seven’ and featuring spellbinding music from the region; Zaytoun (dir. Eran Riklis), a touching drama about a friendship between a Palestinian orphan and a captured Israeli fighter pilot starring Stephen Dorff, and Six Acts (dir. Johnathan Gurfinkel), an edgy and perceptive portrait of an Israeli teen girl recently touted as one of the best films in the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.

Stand out documentaries include the critically lauded, award-winning The Gatekeepers (dir. Dror Moreh), (nominated for Best Documentary at the 2013 Academy Awards, and winner of Best Documentary LA Film Critics,nternal security agency whose activities and membership are normally closely held state secrets; Israel: A Home Mand Cinema for Peace Award in Berlin) featuring interviews with all surviving former heads of Shin Bet, the Israeli iovie (dir. Eliav Lilti), which weaves together stunning home movie footage from the early years of Israel up until the late 70s offering a critical look at the history of the Jewish state; and Good Garbage (dir. Ada Ushpiz, Shosh Shlam), which documents the lives of the 200 Palestinian families in the Palestinian village of Yatta who eke out a living from the garbage dump in the Hebron Hills which serves local Israeli settlements.
