The trailer for the movie "Where is Anne Frank?"

(Cannes Film Festival)

"Karaoke" and "Valeria Gets Married" are the leading films in the number of nominations at the Ophir Awards - this is what the Israel Film and Television Academy announced today (Wednesday).

"Karaoke" by Moshe Rosenthal deals with an aging couple whose lives are shaken by the appearance of a neighbor who enjoys singing in public, while "Valeria Gets Married" by Michal Vinik - one of the few films in this year's competition directed by women - deals with Ukrainian women who marry Israeli men.

Both films received 14 nominations each, and will compete head-to-head for both the Best Picture Award and the Director category.

The five nominees for the best film award - and for the opportunity to represent Israel at the Oscars - are completed by Yona Rosenkiar's "The Road to Eilat", about a father and son's journey from the north of the country to the southern city after which it is named;

"Sabaya Cinema" by Orit Fox-Rotem, which describes a videography workshop with the participation of Jewish and Arab women;

And "Where's Anne Frank" by Ari Pullman - the only film in the competition that was distributed commercially.

In an unprecedented way, this is the second time in a row that an Israeli animated film competes for the best film award, after last year "Legend of Destruction" won the honor.

The directing category is almost the same, but instead of Pullman, Maor Zagori is nominated for "Virgins", his autobiographical and first full-length film.

This is the first nomination for the directing award for all five nominees.

The acting categories may provide history: if Sasson Gabbay, who is nominated for the best leading actor award for "Karaoke", wins it - he will overtake Asi Dayan, Moshe Ivgi and Lior Ashkenazi and become the first Israeli actor with four Ophir awards.

For this he will have to overcome Yoel Rosenkiar ("The Road to Eilat"), Yaakov Zeda Daniel ("Valeria Gets Married"), Maor Levy ("Virgins") and Maurice Cohen ("The Silence").

In a similar situation is Dana Ivegi, who is nominated for the best leading actress award for two different films - "Sabaya Cinema" and the docu-drama "Savoy".

If she wins over Livna Finkelstein ("Silence"), Lena Freifeld ("Valeria Gets Married") and Rita Shukron ("Karaoke") - she will overtake Ronit Alkavetz and become the most decorated actress in the history of the ceremony with four different wins.

The docu category marks the dominance of Hot8, which is responsible for three of the five nominees in the longest documentary category - "Tantura" in question, "Anat Gov, about life and death", and "Eshte Hail".

The top five is completed by "Dr. Morris's Camera" (Yes Docu) and Shlomi Alkabetz's film about his sister, the actress Ronit Alkabetz, "Black Notebooks" (here 11). The short film category consists mostly of films about artists and art: "The Artist's Daughter" About the painter Vladimir Lensky; "Grossman" about the acclaimed writer; "Zoya Cheraksky, Soviet Life" which deals with the artist of the same name; "Zvi Omer" which tells the story of the friendship of Eric Einstein and Zvi Shissel; as well as "The Seven Years of Avshalom" about the Israeli artist He died in the blood of his days.

The Ophir Awards ceremony will be held on September 18 at Zappa Midtown in Tel Aviv, and will be broadcast a few hours later on Beshet 12, at 11:00 p.m.

The academy promises that this year the ceremony will undergo a format refresh, and will become rhythmic, festive and shorter."
