A 2017 romantic drama film with a tender love triangle including a ghost in the middle. The story believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religion can deter. In 2018, The Cakemaker won seven Ophir awards by the Israeli Academy of Film and Television. The film also became Israel's official entry to the 2019 Oscars in the Best Foreign Film category, and should have, but it was not nominated.

Salam, an inexperienced young Palestinian man, becomes a writer on a popular soap opera after a chance meeting with an Israeli soldier. His creative career is on the rise - until the soldier and the show's financial backers disagree about how the show should end, and Salam is caught in the middle.

A brass band composed of members of the Egyptian Ceremonial Police Orchestra head to Israel to play at the inaugural ceremony of an Arab arts center. But due to bureaucracy, bad luck, and miscommunication (Arabic has no "p" sound, and regularly replaces it with "b") instead of the city of Petach Tikvah, the band takes a bus to Beit Hatikva, a desolate, small Israeli town, somewhere in the heart of the Negev desert. The recent Broadway version won 10 Tony Awards. including best musical .

Asia is a mother-daughter drama film. Asia, a thirty-five year old single mom immigrated to Jerusalem from Russia with her daughter, where she works as a nurse at a hospital. Asia is not your average mom. She’s free-spirited, open-minded and non-judgmental; but all that is put to the test when her teenage daughter Vika – who happens to be differently abled – announces that she’s ready to lose her virginity.

The film is based on the true story of the love affair between sassy Pnina Gary and the reserved and ideological freedom-fighter Eli Ben–Zvi, son of the Second President of the State of Israel. It gave a seemingly realistic insight into Israel of 1947 where you could also see the roots of Israeli culture today.
