This is the tenth year in which the members of the Israel Film Critics Forum - representing film critics from a variety of media organizations in Israel - give awards to the best films of the year.

The selection method begins with the personal choices of each critic and later - if no contestant wins 50 percent of the votes in the first round - votes are held in a second and sometimes a third round, until the winner is chosen.

The chairmen of the Film Critics Forum, Yonatan Tzuria and Naama Rak, summarized the choices of the members and members of the forum: "After two difficult years for the world as a whole and for cinema in particular, in 2022 the cinemas will be filled with new films. Many Israeli films have been released to the cinemas after a long wait, a load that probably affected the ability of some of them to arouse attention and interest from viewers.The large and impressive amount of films proved the versatility and great diversity of the local industry, whether it is feature or documentary cinema.

"We chose to award the best film award to a touching, smart and unique film, directed and written with great talent, 'Cinema Sabaya', by Orit Fox Rotem. In the other categories, we were happy to have the opportunity to salute some of the creators who moved us the most in the past year. Director Moshe Rosenthal presented his film The first full-length 'Karaoke' was an impressive and gratifying success. In addition to the director's award, we also chose the two main actors in the film - Sasson Gabbay and Rita Shukron - as our actor and actress of the year, thanks to their virtuoso and unforgettable performances.

"In this year's discovery category, we chose director Oren Garner, whose film 'Africa' arrived in theaters this year after a long wait. We are already very curious about our next work. This time we chose to award the artistic achievement award to the Aroz HaKivd group - Dor Moskal, Omer Ribak and Rotem Kaplinsky - about the songs they wrote and performed in the movie starring them, 'Olema Le Rash'".
