This year’s festival will be held from 18st – 25th May
SERET INTERNATIONAL, the Israeli Film and Television Festival, opens its 12th edition in the UK. SERET INTERNATIONAL is the largest Israeli film festival in the world and will screen feature films, documentaries and shorts by Israel’s best directors, weaving together the story of Israeli society in a mosaic. As every year, the program of the festival is varied and fascinating and this year will focus on the female narrative in Israeli cinema and on films made by women creators.
This is an opportunity to be exposed to the work of the best female directors from Israel, in a celebration of female, original and diverse cinema. As a result of the social processes taking place in the world as well as in Israel in recent years and affecting the lives of women and their rights in Israel and the world in general, we wish to celebrate the female filmmakers of Israel, make their work accessible to the general public, to share all the diverse populations of Israel in the festival, and of course to give a platform to excellent stories of women.
We have enjoyed great success in bringing the best of Israeli feature films, documentaries, shorts and TV to the UK, shortly after, we have expanded with new festivals in Germany, Netherlands, Chile and Argentina.
This year’s eight days festival is packed with screenings of female pioneers of Israeli cinema, as well as an introduction to a new generation of female creators and narratives in our short film competition.
The Israeli film and TV industry has grown in quality and international recognition over recent years, collecting awards from some of the biggest film festivals in the world. Stars of the Israeli TV and cinema have become international household names, and even during lock down, Israeli film makers were as productive as ever, finding new platforms to reach global audiences through the small screen.
