The Jerusalem International Book Fair E-mail

The Jerusalem International Book Fair (JIBF) will take place again at the First Station, Jerusalem, from 11 to 15 June, in conjunction with the Hebrew Book Week (organised by the Israeli Publishers Association).

Visitors to the fair can participate in unique cultural and literary experiences, including meetings with authors, book displays, readings, and activities for children.

Events are free of charge and open to the general public. The International Book Fair Exhibition Hall is one of the main attractions of the fair. About 250 publishers from Israel and abroad will present local and international contemporary books.

JIBF is a biennial event that has taken place since 1963. It is a substantial meeting ground between literature and publishing communities both Israeli and international. Each JIBF brings to Jerusalem hundreds of publishers, editors, agents and scouts and presents the Israeli literary scene to them, while at the same time exposing international literature to attendees.

Israel Film Festival in Vietnam E-mail

The recent Israel Film Festival 2017 in Vietnam, organised by Israel’s Embassy in Vietnam, brought new and previously unheard aspects of Israeli culture to Vietnamese viewers.

The event enabled Israel to enhance its 20-year links with Vietnam by providing an insight into Israel’s rich cultural heritage through an assorted selection of films. The screenings took place in Hanoi from 23 to 27 February and in Ho Chi Minh from 2 to 6 March.

Five films were screened:

Magic Men. A 78-year-old man and his religious Chasidic rapper son go on a magical journey to Greece, searching for an old magician who saved the father’s life. The journey leads them to absurd encounters, and brings them to a nal test of father and son.

Zero Motivation. Three consecutive stories recount events in an administration office at a remote army base in the Israeli desert. The stories compose a military epic of power struggles, intrigues and a friendship on trial, with a focus on the female clerical staff.
