Pluralistic Expression in Israeli Film and Television: Arab citizens behind the camera and on screen

Sep 10, 2015 5:30pm

Though Arab citizens make up nearly 21% of Israel's population, it is only in recent years that films by and about Arabs in Israel are being seen in Israeli cinema and television. Many civil society leaders have been working to expand cultural representation and expression within the country, both for deeper mutual understanding within, and greater awareness of Israeli diversity abroad.

The Task Force, OtherIsrael Film Festival, and New Israel Fund hosted Dorit Inbar, Executive Director of the New Fund for Cinema and Television, for a viewing of clips from recent films and discussion about how efforts to advance pluralistic expression in Israeli cinema are empowering Arab citizens, and Arab women especially, to bring their realities to the screen.
