The history of Israelite cinema started from 1948 when Israel was founded. In 1960s-1970s Bourekas Israeli movies were very popular. Bourekas was a specific genre of Israeli films about ethnic conflicts. Another popular genre of Israel movies in 1980s is the "New sensitivity". The best Israeli movies of that time: But Where Is Daniel Wax? by Avraham Heffner, The Policeman Azoulay directed by Ephraim Kishon, I Love You Rosa and The House on Chelouche Street by Moshé Mizrahi were nominated for the Academy Award as the Best Foreign Film. Israelite films were nominated for the Academy Awards more than other countries in the Middle East. There are a number of Israeli war movies about conflict between Palestine and Israel. Lots of movies in Israel were dedicated to Holocaust theme. Two cinema festivals are held in Israel: Jerusalem Film Festival and Haifa International Film Festival.

Intent on shaking up the ultimate 'sacred cow' for Jews, Israeli director Yoav Shamir embarks on a provocative - and at times irreverent - quest to answer the question, "What is anti-Semitism today?" Does it remain a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit their critics? Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today. His findings are shocking, enlightening and - surprisingly - often wryly funny.
