The third annual Jerusalem Light Festival will kick off on Wednesday evening in Jerusalem's Old City, featuring art installations bursting with light and 3D video montages splayed across the city’s ancient walls and buildings.

The week-long festival, a joint effort by the Jerusalem Municipality, the Prime Minister’s Office, the semi-public Ariel Company and the Jerusalem Development Authority, costs NIS 7 million to produce, part of which is covered by sponsors.

Last year the festival drew 200,000 people. More information and a map of the installations at
