Besides being top, award-winning Israeli filmmakers, what do Joseph Cedar (“Footnote”), Ari Folman (“Waltz with Bashir”) and Eytan Fox (“Yossi and Jagger”) have in common?
They are graduates of Tel Aviv University Film and Television School, Israel’s oldest and largest film school. In honor of the school’s 40th anniversary, the S.F.-based Israel Center and San Francisco Jewish Film Festival are presenting a loop of short films by young Israeli filmmakers on June 10.
The narrative and documentary movies deal with various facets of contemporary Israeli experience.
Eleven films will run continuously from noon to 4 p.m. in the theater room at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, 736 Mission St. (directly across from Yerba Buena Gardens).
