Other Israel Film Festival sets date

Weeklong event kicks off Nov. 12 in New York

The third annual Other Israel Film Festival, dedicated to showcasing the lives of Arab citizens of Israel, will take place Nov. 12-19 in New York. The weeklong fest will run at the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan, Cinema Village and other locations around the city.

The fest is presented by the Israel Film Center at the JCC in Manhattan.

"Film is a great vehicle for cultural understanding, and we are excited to continue our conversation and shine a light on a segment of Israel's population that no one gets to see," said fest founder Carole Zabar.
