London theater to host Jewish film festival after all
|Follow j. on||and|
A London theater that refused to host a Jewish film festival because of the event’s Israeli government funding has reversed course.
The Tricycle Theatre decided to continue serving as a venue for the UK Jewish Film Festival after the theater’s initial refusal earlier this month sparked criticism, the Telegraph reported.
The Tricycle said earlier it would not host the UK Jewish Film Festival, which it has hosted for eight years, unless the annual festival eschewed funding from the Israeli embassy, which the theater described as “party to the current conflict” in Gaza.
Festival organizers said the demands were “entirely unacceptable.” — jta
