'Lost Islands' opening Israel Film Fest

Event will run in L.A. from June 3 to June 18

More than 30 movies will be screened at the 24th Israel Film Festival, set to run June 3 to June 18 at three Los Angeles-area theaters.

Opening night events will include the West Coast premiere of "Lost Islands," the top-grossing release in Israel last year. A fest awards ceremony is set for June 3 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

A portion of the funds raised from opening night and awards gala receipts will be earmarked for scholarships for Israeli film-study scholarships.
