JIFF Withdraws Two Films

When we heard that 2 films were withdrawn from JIFF, we were like, “inquiring minds (ok, nosy busy bodies) want to know!” Is there some sort of scandal?! As it turns out, it’s good news: Isreali films The Cutoff Man and Fill the Void were accepted into the venable 69th Venice Film Festival! Congratulations! And so they had to withdraw from JIFF, pesky premiere statuses and all. JIFF is very gracious about the entire thing, and slotted two interesting films in their place – Bernie and 7 Days in Havana. If this means we get to watch Richard Linklater, Benicio del Toro, Shirley MacLaine, Elia Suleiman, Gaspar No√©, and so on and so on, we will suffer gladly. At the end of the day it’s about making and supporting great films and everyone (The Cutoff Man and Fill the Void teams, JIFF and Venice) succeeded.
