This Wednesday, September 6, will be Israeli Film Day 2017, with 33 recent Israeli films – many of which will be having their local premieres – showing at movie theaters across the country, for just NIS 10 per ticket. Those who pay with an Isracard can receive an additional discount.

These films will include the five movies nominated for the Ophir Award for Best Picture: Maysaloun Hamoud’s In Between, Samuel Maoz’s Foxtrot, Savi Gabizon’s Longing, Matan Yair’s Scaffolding and Eliran Elya’s Doubtful.

This is the fourth year that Israeli Film Day has been held and over 100,000 viewers took the opportunity to see locally made films in previous years.


This year marks the first time that the Culture and Sports Ministry and the Film Industry Association will award a special tribute to a single filmmaker, and this year it goes to Avi Nesher, both to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of his classic film The Band (Ha Lahaka) and the fact that his movies have sold over a million tickets in Israel.
