The Israeli film competition section is made up of seven movies which will vie for 11 prizes, including the Haggiag Award for Best Feature. The pics set to compete are Ofir Raul Graizer's "The Cakemaker," a daring drama about a young German baker who infiltrates the life of his deceased secret lover, and Dana Goldberg and Efrat Mishori's "Death of a Poetess," about the encounter between a nurse and a world-renowned researcher who is dying.

 

Also competing are Eliran Elya's "Doubtful," about a man aspiring to save delinquent youth through art; Veronica Kedar's "Family," a portrait of a dysfunctional family; Shady Srour's comedy "Holy Air," about a father-to-be with an unusual business idea; Savi Gabizon's dark comedy "Longing," centering on a well-off man whose life gets turned upside-down when his college girlfriend reappears; and Matan Yair's "Scaffolding," about a 17-year-old boy struggling to find his own path despite pressure from his father, who wants him to take over his scaffolding business.

 

As previously announced, Michel Hazanavicius's "Redoutable," which competed at Cannes, will open the festival during an open-air screening introduced by Hazanavicius. Lev Films will release "Redoutable" in Israel.

 

This year's fest will also expand beyond the local Cinematheque, hosting screenings across the city of Jerusalem, and will be experimenting with interactive events, animation and video-mapping installations.
