Israeli films fared better outside Israel

Tuesday, January 03, 2006 | 
Israeli cinema fared better in other nations while tanking in box offices around Israel. Sixteen Israeli films made it to the screen last year, drawing a total of 300,000 viewers compared to 1.5 million Israelis who attended Hebrew-speaking films in 2004. However, Israeli films that were screened elsewhere earned unprecedented success. Three million viewers, 10 times the number in Israel, saw these films during the year. It must be noted though that this involved some of the successful films shown in Israel in 2004 that were very successful at the box office. The total income from these screenings abroad is about $25 million.
