Last night, the 30th Anniversary Israel Film Festival opened with its Gala Awards Dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles.

A pregnant Natalie Portman and Sharon Stone were both awarded Achievement Awards.

Among the 30 recent Israeli movies at the festival will be Elite Zexer’s Sand Storm (which I blogged about here), Asaph Polonsky’s One Week and a Day, Eran Kolirin’s Beyond the Mountains and Hills, Dani Menkin’s On the Map, Ido Haar’s Presenting Princess Shaw and the Heymann brothers’ Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?.
