Eilat International Film Festival

The Eilat International Film Festival is an international film festival held annually in the resort city of Eilat, on the southern tip of Israel, on the northern shores of the Red Sea.

The festival was established in 2003 by Chen Sadan Shelach, former leading Israeli publicist (who died recently).

The festival focuses on quality films the world over, Israeli premieres, children's films and each edition hosts a different specialized category. In addition, every festival hosts a variety of workshops and related events. Guests who have attended the festival include, American actress Valerie Harper, Oscar winner Ari Sandel, cinematographer Adam Greenberg, TV director Jeremy Kagan, leading Hollywood producers Avi Lerner and Dan Dimbort and additionally a host of Israeli leading industry professionals and celebrities.

The first festival opened the night the Iraq War started - an event which caused increased interest from leading international media outlets who in turn interviewed the international guests whom decided to attend the festival despite the threat of imminent missile attack on Israel.
