Family Time – Win a Double Pass

April 11, 2013 – 5:51 pmOne Comment

Following a hugely successful 23rd Jewish International Film Festival, JIFF All Year Round presents the first special event for the 2013 Calendar.

Israeli Director Nitzan Gilady returns to Melbourne to premiere Family Time, (2012). Gilady’s previous documentary – Jerusalem is Proud to Present was the Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at Melbourne Queer Film Festival in 2009.

Nitzan Gilady will be in Australia for a short time and will be at Classic Cinemas to introduce the film, followed by a Q&A session with audiences after the screening.

JIFF Festival Director Eddie Tamir says “It’s fantastic to be able to offer our devoted and culturally hungry JIFF audiences quality content in the lead up to the next festival and it is doubly satisfying to be supporting the emerging directors dealing with Jewish content in brave and interesting ways.”

family time cIn Family Time (זמן משפחה), Director Nitzan Gilady puts his family under the lens as they travel to the Grand Canyon. In a small crowded RV, there’s usually a lot of extra emotional baggage. Gilady’s conservative father worries about his youngest son suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, struggles with his middle son who left Israel years ago and he is in denial that his eldest son, the filmmaker, is gay. Meanwhile, Gilady‘s mother tries her best to keep her family from imploding.

This is a universal story of the love and frustration of family, children reaching for self-fulfilment and identity and the dreams and hopes of parents.

Screening details:  Monday 22 April, 7pm at Classic Cinemas Elsternwick for this exclusive JIFF screening of Family Time followed by a Q&A with award winning Director, Nitzan Gilady.

Tickets can be booked by contacting The Classic.
