The closure of Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport has been extended until March 6 and the Israeli authorities have to give permission to travel on a case-by-case basis. The Berlinale deeply regrets that Nadav Lapid will not be able to travel to Berlin. He will therefore view the screenings online in Tel Aviv.

“I was happy, of course to get an invitation to be a member of this year’s Berlinale International Jury, a special jury in this far from normal moment. The current situation made it, in a way, even more necessary. Unfortunately, though I was led to believe there was a likelihood that I could travel since other special cases were approved, my request for permission was refused. I was very surprised by the decision of the government. Like my fellow jury member Mohammad Rasoulof, I will watch the Competition’s films at my place - here, in Tel Aviv - and will play an active part in the decision making. It goes without saying that I’m curious and thrilled to discover the selection, looking to find innovative, adventurous, urgent and beautiful movies,” says director and jury member Nadav Lapid.
