1. Antarctica [DVD] Popular
If you didn't think Israeli cinema could get any more controversial than box-office hit The Bubble, then think again. Yair Hochner's Antarctica leaves no taboo unturned in this latest tale of twilight bed-hopping from Tel Aviv.

Good-looking librarian Omer is eternally searching for the perfect match, but keeps getting tangled up in a series of meaningless one-night stands. When fetching journalist Ronen enters the scene, matters are complicated further as the men become embroiled in innumerable bouts of passionate encounters behind each other's backs. Soon enough, they must face one another and make a decision: is true love worth looking for, or can you really live happily ever after?

2. Cupcakes [DVD] Popular
When a group of best friends in Tel Aviv gather to watch Universong, they are less than impressed by the official Israeli entry. Believing that they can do better, they spontaneously create and record their own song on a mobile phone.

Little do they know, their performance is seen by the Universong judges and soon they are reluctantly thrown into the spotlight as Israel s next official entry. After initial reservations about their new found celebrity status, they decide to just go for it and find themselves on the road to international stardom. They embark on a flamboyant journey that brings about hilarious end results as they go head to head with the Russian entry in the Universong final.

From Eytan Fox the director of YOSSI, comes this extravagant and unashamedly entertaining Eurovision parody featuring a feel-good soundtrack provided by Babydaddy from the Scissor Sisters. With bright, Almodóvar-esque styling, irresistibly catchy tunes and a gloriously uplifting storyline, this laugh-out-loud comedy is a refreshing ode to music, friendship and romance.

3. Yossi [DVD] Popular
Returning to the role that won him TFF's Best Actor award in Eytan Fox's Yossi & Jagger in 2003, Ohad Knoller gives another extraordinary performance as Yossi, a closeted gay man living a solitary existence in Tel Aviv. A perennially sad, workaholic doctor, Yossi has his quiet world shaken when a middle-aged woman walks out of his past and into his examination room. Their brief but emotionally charged reunion unnerves Yossi enough to make him spontaneously leave Tel Aviv. On the desolate roads of southern Israel, a chance encounter with a group of lively soldiers ignites Yossi's desire to awaken from his emotional slumber.
