Ophir Awards Ceremony Scheduled for September 21, 2010


The Ophir Awards ceremony will take place on September 21, 2010 at the Jerusalem Theatre, and will be broadcast the same night on Channel 1, at 21:30. This year, for the first time, the program will also be broadcast in HD format, on 511.

Prizes are awarded in 14 categories: 13 for feature films and one prize is awarded for Best Documentary. In light of the abundance of quality documentaries and the growing interest in this genre, the imbalance in focus is something that should be reconsidered in this writer’s opinion.

The film selected as Best Feature will represent Israel in the competition for Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards on February 27, 2011.

Actor, director and producer Zeev Revah will receive a lifetime achievement award at the ceremony.

The ceremony will be attended by Minister of Culture and Sport Limor Livnat, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, and Chairman of the Israeli Film Council Michah Harish.
