The list of overseas donors helping to repair damage from the summer's fighting between Israel and Hizbullah now includes Sony Pictures. Representatives of the Hollywood studio appeared earlier this week at the Haifa International Film Festival to present a $50,000 check to the Jewish National Fund, which will use the money to restore burnt forests, rebuild tourist infrastructure and strengthen ties between nearby communities. The JNF was chosen because it is a non-governmental organization that works to protect the environment, a spokesperson said. Sony announced its donation at the Israeli premiere of Open Season, an animated film about animals who join forces to protect their forest home. Some 500 children from northern Israel were invited to the screening as Sony's guests. Studio officials in attendance included Yair Landau, Sony's Israeli-born vice president. The studio will also donate $25,000 to the Red Cross in Lebanon.
