The 12th Annual Israeli Film Festival was a hit!
Our annual Israeli Film Festival is dedicated to fostering an understanding of Israeli culture and access to Israel’s young but thriving film industry. This year’s festival, which ran virtually from January 20-30, 2022, featured films based upon various considerations such as awards or nominations, timely subject matter and input from the film community.

Meet the committee and hear an overview of the films.
