    SERET UK 2022

    SERET UK, the Israeli Film & TV Festival will be held from May 12th – 19th 2022

    This is the broadest Festival that we have yet curated. The Israeli film and TV industry has rocketed in quality and international recognition over recent years, with major wins in the biggest film awards around the world. Stars of the Israeli TV and cinema have become household names around the world and even during lockdown, Israeli filmmakers were as productive as ever, finding new platforms to reach global audiences through the small screen.

    It makes us very proud to say that SERET International is the now the largest Israeli film festival in the world, with screenings across 16 different cities in five countries; the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Chile and this year, for the first time, in Argentina too.

    Close Up – Avi Nesher Tribute

    This year we are paying tribute to the work of Israel’s much-loved director Avi Nesher
    The Opening Gala for the Festival on 12th May, which will be held at the Ham Yard Hotel in London will be devoted to Avi Nesher’s latest film Image of Victory, a thought-provoking and powerful anti-war epic, telling the story of the 1948 Israeli War of Independence from both sides. During the Festival there will be a retrospective of Nesher’s work, including screenings of The Matchmaker, Past Life and Turn Left at the End of the World.

    Cultural Icons

    Documentaries devoted to Israeli cultural icons include On This Happy Note, the spiritual legacy of leading Israeli playwright Anat Gov; The Fourth Window the double tragedy behind the international success story of writer Amos Oz, and The Last Chapter of AB Yehoshua – after being widowed and seriously ill himself, one of Israel’s greatest living writers has not given up the desire for life, and Black Notebooks, a two part documentary created and dedicated to Ronit Elkabetz’s by her brother Shlomi after the sudden death of this admired creator, fashion icon, and actress.

    Screenings in London, Brighton, Cambridge, Oxford and Edinburgh

    The Festival will be held in cinemas in London including the Picturehouse Hackney, Everyman Belsize Park, Everyman Maida Vale, Phoenix East Finchley, and the JW3 Finchley Road. Screenings will also be held at the Brighton Komedia Picturehouse, the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, Oxford Phoenix Picturehouse and Edinburgh Cameo Picturehouse.
