Hosted a Kick-off Reception Honoring the Sponsors
of The 24th Israel Film  Festival
The Largest Showcase of Israeli Films in the United States



The IsraFest Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization founded in 1982, created the Israel Film Festival to showcase Israel's thriving film and television industry. The annual event plays a vital educational role in today's world, providing an intercultural exchange that advances tolerance and understanding and enriches America's vision of Israel's impressive social and cultural diversity.

We honor some of the most talented writers, producers and directors who have become a creative force throughout the world, winning awards at international film festivals from Sundance to Berlin, Cannes to Copenhagen and Tokyo to Toronto. Each year, a Gala Awards Dinner is held at the famed Beverly Hilton where industry luminaries are recognized for a lifetime of achievement. A bright future is in store for this cinematic niche as evidenced in the rise of Israeli productions coming to the U.S. where audiences are able to appreciate how this powerful medium has established and elevated the Jewish identity.

About The Israel Film Festival

The Israel Film Festival has shown more than 800 features films, documentaries, television dramas and short films to roughly 900,000 film enthusiasts. What makes this annual event so unique is that is plays in Los Angeles, New York and Miami—a rarity on the film festival circuit. Since debuting in 1981 with just half a dozen movies, the festival has become one of the nation's leading foreign film festivals and the largest showcase for Israeli films in the United States as well as a launching pad for several notable U.S. premieres.

Our extraordinary collection of stylish cinema verite, gripping dramas, thought-provoking documentaries and offbeat comedies, including all seven Israeli films that have been nominated for Academy Awards, appeal to everyone from the most discerning film critic to family audiences. Festival-goers are treated to a bird's eye view of spotlight premieres in post-screening Q&As with the filmmakers. Opening-night screenings have been held at the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre and Cinerama Dome at the ArcLight Hollywood.

The festival's founder, Meir Fenigstein, had stars in his eyes when
 he was a student at the Boston College of Music, dreaming one day of starting an Israel film festival in the U.S. to showcase his beloved country's celluloid heroes and filmmaking talent. Torn between music and cinema, he first pursued a career as the drummer for Kavaret
and later channeled the popular Israeli rock group's raw energy into the Israel Film Festival for which the Tel Aviv native serves as Executive Director.

Over the years, Fenigstein has been able to sustain the festival with the help of several key organizations that play an indispensable role in generously supporting the festival from one year to the next. They include the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles, government of Israel, the Israel Film Fund, the Israeli film and television industry and Hollywood community, as well as numerous businesses, foundations and individuals.
