The Israel Film Center Festival has announced that its eighth edition will be a completely virtual experience this year, running June 7-14.
The festival will be presented online by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. Films will be available for 24 hours after their initial screening time and include Q&A discussions with filmmakers and talent. Tickets cost $8 per screening.

The lineup also includes Alon Gur Arye’s comedy, “Mossad,” in which a tech billionaire is kidnapped, causing an international espionage competition between the Mossad and the CIA; Boaz Armoni’s comedy “The Electrifiers”; Erez Tadmor’s “The Art of Waiting”; Yaron Shani’s drama “Chained”; the documentary “There Are No Lions in Tel Aviv”; four episodes of the documentary “Dayan: The First Family”; and Dani Menkin’s documentary “Aulcie.”
