(ANSAMed) - JERUSALEM - The Jerusalem International Film Festival, which opens here July 5 to last until July 14, has much of Italy in it, beginning with an homage to Michelangelo Antonioni on the centenary of his birth, and continuing with the opening gala screening of Woody Allen's film To Rome With Love. Two Israeli entries, Idan Hubel's The Cutoff Man and Rama Burstein's Fill the Void, were withdrawn by the filmmakers when they found out they were chosen for the Venice Film Festival competition, festival organizers said.
