Jerusalem International Film Festival

A unique platform to showcase the world’s finest contemporary cinematic trends.

Since the first Jerusalem Film Festival took off on May 17, 1984, the international festival has spread its wings from a three-week, 100-film screening event to almost double the films, a handful of new genres, and a much larger following. Since its inception, while promoting international films, the festival has made sure to dedicate a central space to Israeli film as well, premiering local features, documentaries, and shorts. By reaching out in new ways like the open-air screenings at Sultan's Pool and through new genres like avant-garde, the much-anticipated summer event has become the most important cinematic gathering in Israel.
