New this year to the festival is a special programme called City-to-City. This programme focuses on films that showcase a specific city, this year being Tel Aviv. In addition to individual tickets and ticket packages, you can see these films with the City-to-City ticket package, which gives you a ticket to each of the 10 films in this programme.
- Bena, from Niv Klainer, a 2009 film about a father trying to keep his schizophrenic son at home, but who finds his task made more difficult when he takes in a Thai migrant worker.
