Cinema Club
Fishka’s Cinema Club is a series of intimate, themed evenings, where guests gather to watch Israeli and foreign films, from classics to modern indie films.
These evenings also include fervent discussions, meetings with film directors, writers, actors and other people involved in film production. The Film Club particularly focuses on creating a link between young Russian-speaking people and the Jewish and Israeli culture.
The Cinema Club was founded in 2008 and it has since grown to become one of the most important components of the cultural life of Fishka’s regular “cinema-activists” and many other visitors.
Not long ago the Club expanded and began showing a number of recent popular Russian films, made available by the company YES.
It’s more enjoyable to watch a movie with a group of friends and a cup of tea, rather than by yourself, and especially to participate in discussions, to consider the art of cinema, the cinematic language of the director, to study the tricks of the trade and the connection between films and important life events. These are the guiding principles for film selection at Fishka’s Cinema Club.
It’s interesting to note the following movies, shown previously:
- The film “Everything is Illuminated” – a path to oneself, using the secrets of Road Movies from Fishka’s movie expert.
- The Israeli film “Policeman” and a meeting with the director.
- “Soviet new year films as a unique cultural phenomenon” – a lecture and discussion, accompanied by relevant movie fragments.
- “Blue Velvet” by David Lynch, with music by Angelo Badalamenti.
- “Waltz with Bashir” – an evening dedicated to the national memory and forgetfulness. 
- “The Bubble” – a discussion about life in central Tel Aviv and searching for oneself in this city.
- “Wristcutters: A Love Story” – the script was written by the Israeli writer Edgar Keret. Keret met with audience after the film viewing
