Since its establishment in 2007, The Other Israel Film Festival had become a leader in the presentation and promotion of films by and about the Arab citizens of Israel and other minorities in Israeli society. As part of its ongoing support of films and filmmakers dealing with the lives and stories of these diverse communities, The Other Israel Film Festival is proud to announce its film funding program, encouraging creative cinematic work bringing the other Israel to the big screen and to audiences throughout the world.
The funding program was established in 2009 by the Other Israel Film Festival, a program of The Israel Film Center @ The JCC in Manhattan with a gift from Mrs. Carole Zabar.
