Another tribute will be held for the independent American animator Don Hertzfeldt.
Nine Israeli movies will compete for the best full-length feature award at the 29th Jerusalem International Film Festival, to be held July 5-14.
Seven of the competing movies are the first works of directors, and two were made by women. The contestants include Ami Levana's "Sharqiya," which debuted in the last Berlin Festival, and Meni Yaesh's "God's Neighbors," which was screened at the last Cannes Festival's "Critics' Week" - both to critical acclaim.
Other films competing in the category of best feature film include director and screenwriter Dover Kosashvili's new film "Single Plus," starring Yael Toker, Ruby Porat Shoval and Michal Yanai; Benny Torati's "The Balad of the Weeping Spring;" Yariv Horowitz's "Rock the Casbah;" Dana Goldberg's "Alice;" Idan Hubel's "Disconnecting the Water;" Rama Burstein's "Filling the Void;" and Amir Manor's "Hayuta and Berl."
