TEL AVIV, Israel -- The first edition of Jewish Eye: World Jewish Film Festival opens Oct. 28 with a screening of Nicholas Racz's black comedy Burial Society (Canada). The six-day event, held at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque in cooperation with the Jerusalem-based Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive, will feature 70 films -- 60 in competition -- from 17 countries. The festival, described by organizers as the first of its kind in Israel and the Jewish world, will showcase the work of both Jewish and non-Jewish filmmakers drawn from the 100-plus Jewish film festivals held annually worldwide and will include features, documentaries, television dramas and series, and animation. Three competitive categories, which include features, documentaries and shorts, will share prize money of $6,000, said artistic director Gadi Castel. The event will screen the world premier of documentary Herzl, the first-ever Israel-Hungary co-production. Director Eva Pataki is expected to be on hand. Other international guests include Swiss director Dani Levy with Zucker (Germany) and Yves Boisset with The Dreyfus Affair (France). The festival, said to be hosting the world's largest collection of Jewish-related films, is contributing a three-part retrospective tracing the histories of both Zionism and local filmmaking, a package containing previously unseen material that is expected to screen at international and Jewish film festivals, said director Hillel Tryster. »
