What Israeli movie-makers (& casters) said at the Israel Film Fest in Hollywood

Back in-person for the first time since 2019,  the 2022 Israel Film Festival movies (and TV shows) restore a communal cinema and social experience to Israeli transplants and lovers of Israel. 

We spoke with celebrities from the films, some filmmakers, a satellite-channel distributor, and a news publisher who discuss the complexity of getting these productions made and seen around the world.

Playlist (first one's upper right arrow activates menu) features: Mr. Omer Hazan from "Don't Wait for Me;"

Mr. Ehud Bleiberg, Producer of "Image of Victory;"

Ms. Agam Schuster from lesbian-parenting quest, "Two;"
