Israeli Film Wins Czech Festival Award

Israeli film "Boker Tov Adon Fidelman" (Good Morning Mr. Fidelman) won the Crystal Globe award for the best picture at the 46th annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic on Saturday. In January, the film won the award for the best screenplay in the feature-film category at the Sundance Film Festival in the United States.

Director Yossi Madmony said, "I'm happy. This started as a modest picture with a modest budget. I put my heart and soul into this film and I feel like the film is paying me back now."
