A theatre has refused to host the UK Jewish Film Festival while it is sponsored by the Israeli Embassy amid the ongoing crisis in Gaza. The Tricycle Theatre in London, which has hosted the festival for the past eight years, had been due to screen at least 26 films as part of the event in November.
But Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director of the Tricycle, said the festival should not accept funding from "any party to the current conflict" between Israel and Palestinians. She said the theatre offered to use funding from its own resources to replace the festival's sponsorship from the Israeli Embassy in London. But the UK Jewish Film Festival (UKJFF) said the Tricycle's demands were "entirely unacceptable" and it was taking its screenings elsewhere.
