  • 34th edition

13 - 23 July 2017

The Jerusalem Film Festival, Israel’s largest and longest-running cultural event of its kind, was founded on two main principles: the promotion of peace and dialogue among all cultures of the region and the support and encouragement of the emerging power and creativity of Israeli Film.
In recent years, the Jerusalem Film Festival has established The Jerusalem Pitch Point a meeting place for Israeli filmmakers and producers with key-members of the International film industry, to encourage and promote international co-productions with Israeli full-length fiction feature films.
