For the 18th time, the international film festival “SPIRIT” will take place in Tel Aviv's Cinematheque from November 20 to November 24, 2024.
The festival showcases the best transformation movies that uplift, inspire, and educate. It includes inspirational stories and themes related to wellness, self-discovery, consciousness, spiritual paths and practice, body-mind science, organic and plant-based nutrition, and sustainable living.
The festival includes documentary and narrative features, short films, filmmaker Q&As, panels, and pairings of films with inspiring talks.

Spirit Film Festival is dedicated to being an international consciousness-changing film festival spreading ideas that contribute to the evolution of consciousness and inspire transformation through films. We aim to showcase cinematic gems that empower the audience to live kinder, wiser, and more enlightened lives.

The festival will entertain international filmmakers, workshops, lectures, and talks inspired by the films, and a colorful new age fair will complete the cinematic happening. The festival is considered the leading event in its field in Israel.

By submitting to SFF, you acknowledge your willingness to have your film considered for screening within a virtual, live, or hybrid film festival scenario.

Note: SPIRIT CINEMA also has a year-round Virtual Screening Platform that brings films and talks to a global audience. If our programmers believe your film would lend itself to a focused event screening outside the festival, we will contact you directly to assess your interest.
