Dear Isaac,

Given some of the reactions to the conflict with Hamas over recent weeks, I believe it’s important that we refocus and celebrate the diverse and sophisticated modern culture that is represented by Israel. This is why I am writing to you about the 11th annual AICE Israeli Film Festival.

With the festival quickly approaching, I urge you to show your support by attending and sharing this event with anyone who may be interested.

This is the first time the festival is operating in all cities and in my view it is vital, particularly in light of the recent Operation Protective Edge, that it is strongly supported by the Australian Jewish Community. If you don’t already know, the AICE was launched in 2002 through a ‘joint declaration’ by the Australian and Israeli Governments, and the Film Festival is one of its premier bilateral cultural events.

As Israeli Ambassador to Australia H.E Mr. Shmuel Ben-Shmuel has stated, “Israeli films present a unique perspective of our nation, and provide an insight into our vibrant national character and dynamic culture”.

Please follow this link to see the program for the Film Festival.

P.S: I recently wrote an article on the disturbing coverage from some members of the Australian media, particularly in the online sphere. You might also be interested in these two Youtube videos (from French and Indian TV) showing Hamas firing rockets from highly populated areas. They are a spectacular indictment of CNN and BBC.
