'Triangle of Sadness' will also be screened in Lev theatres nationwide, following the premiere screening at the Jerusalem Film Festival.
Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle Of Sadness is set to open this year’s Jerusalem Film Festival, which is scheduled to take place from July 21-31.
The opening screening will be held at the Sultan’s Pool Amphitheater with an audience of about five thousand in attendance.
The film, starring Woody Harrelson, Harris Dickinson and Charlbi Dean, explores shifts in social hierarchies after a yacht sinks, leaving a celebrity couple (Dickinson and Dean) marooned on a desert island with a group of billionaires and one of the ship workers who has the skills that can help them survive.
The film gave Swedish director Ostlund his second Palme d’Or at Cannes, five years after winning the top prize with The Square.
More than 200 films, from 50 countries, will be shown throughout the 10 days of the festival, with dozens of premieres of Israeli films. The festival will again feature several film competitions and will present awards worth nearly $300,000.
This year’s JFF Industry Days will take place from July 21-24, including the competitive Jerusalem Pitch Point.
The industry platform will also feature the 10th Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film Lab’s final pitching event, and The Scene, a new initiative from the Jerusalem Film and Television Fund.
