  • The screenings of Mr Shamir's film will go ahead as scheduled. There has never been any question of the film being withdrawn.
  • Certain news stories have reported that Mr Shamir has been advised not to attend; this is untrue. His visit has never been discouraged by the festival.
  • We wrote to Mr Shamir simply because, given that he is our guest, we felt he should be appraised of all the facts pertaining to his visit, and to the various controversy it might engender.
  • Should he decide to attend the screenings, we will be delighted to welcome him as our guest.
  • We are dedicated at all times to the principle of cultural exchange, and to providing a non-partisan forum for same.
