Miami, February

films in the United States, presented in association with the Consulate General
of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, will open on Wednesday, February 17, 2010
and continue through February 25 with all screenings held at the Sunrise
Cinemas Intracoastal Mall
(3701 NE   163 St., North Miami Beach,
FL. 33160, 305.949.6002).

 

Join
celebrities, dignitaries, and sponsors at the Festival’s prestigious Opening
Night Gala
event as we honor legendary singer/actor/director Yehoram
Gaon
with the 2010 IFF Lifetime Achievement Award.  Yehoram
Gaon is one of the leading and most respected singer’s in Israel for the past
five decades. His career as a singer, actor, and director has flourished since
his beginning with Nahal Brigade in IDF. He has produced almost fifty albums,
including Ladino music,

has performed extensively in Israel
and abroad, and starred in television and feature films such as Kazablan,
Entebbe, and this year’s IFF presentation Voices of Jerusalem.

 

In addition to
Yehoram Gaon, the Opening Night Gala also feature honors being presented
to the three largest Israeli banks in Florida:
Bank Hapoalim, Ron Reshef,;
Bank Leumi USA, Akiva Segal; IDB Bank, David Keinan
with the 2010 IFF Community Leadership
Award
; and, the Peres Center for Peace with the 2010 IFF
Humanitarian Award.
  A special award, the 2010 IFF Founders
Award
, will be presented to Mr. Shaul Rikman, CEO of Isram Realty
Group.

 

The Opening Night Film will
be the highly praised Israeli box office smash A MATTER OF SIZE, a touching, light-hearted
comedy about a group of four ‘very’ overweight friends in the Israeli city of
Ramle who decide to start a sumo wrestling club and escape from the
dictatorship of diets espoused by their weight-loss group decide to pursue a
sport where their size is an asset.
  In the process they all
experience a ‘coming out’ of a different kind – learning to accept themselves
both in life and love.  A MATTER OF SIZE, directed by Sharon Maymon
& Erez Tadmor, was nominated for 14 Israeli
Academy “Ofir” awards in
2009.  The film will be release by Menemsha Films in Spring 2010 and the
Weinsteins have bought the US remake rights to remake in English.

 

The IFF’s Closing
Night Film
will be the highly acclaimed AJAMI, which has just
been selected as one of the five nominated films vying for Best Foreign Film
in this year’s Academy Awards.  A powerful crime drama set on the
streets of Jaffa’s Ajami neighborhood – a melting pot of cultures and
conflicting views among Jews, Muslims and Christians – and told through the
eyes of a cross-section of the city’s inhabitants.  The film is co-directed
by Israeli and Arab-Israeli filmmakers, Yaron Shani and Scandar Copti
, a
statement in itself. Winner of the Israeli Academy Award for Best Film, AJAMI
is also the first Arab-Israeli language film to represent the Jewish state at
the Oscars.

 

The 24th Israel Film Festival will
present 20 Israeli features, documentaries, and award-winning student shorts,
ranging from cinéma vérité and comedies to thought-provoking, powerful dramas
and documentaries. 

 

Under the expert
supervision of Founder/Executive Director Meir Fenigstein, The Israel Film Festival is
presented by IsraFest Foundation, Inc., in association with the Consulate
General of Israel to
Florida
and
Puerto Rico. The Festival has been responsible for introducing
Israeli life and culture to American audiences through the powerful medium of
film, providing a comprehensive intercultural exchange and has brought hundreds
of Israeli filmmakers to the United
States
to share their craft. Through the past 24 IFF, more than 900,000
filmgoers across the country have experienced the best of Israeli cinema by
viewing more than 800 feature films, documentaries, television dramas, short
films and student shorts.

 

The Festival is
the only film festival that will visit three American cities - Los Angeles, New
York and Miami.
