The Israeli film industry continues to consolidate its status as a major player on the international circuit, with films invited to be screened at the major film festivals around the world. Awards followed – Berlin, Cannes, Moscow and Tokyo, to name but a few. ‘The Band’s Visit’ became the most successful Israeli film in history, with global sales of more than $US11 million (and still counting – this figure does not include the box office in Australia where the film is still on release). But equally importantly, 2007 saw record box-office sales at home for Israeli produced film, with more than 1.5 million tickets sold. This represented an extraordinary 16% of the total box-office for the year.
