Jerusalem Film Festival 2021

Tarantino pays tribute to the Cannon Group

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino returns to the prestigious Jerusalem Film Festival, where he was honored in 2016, to present a special selection of films in tribute to the legendary Cannon Group. As the JFF notes state, “When a pair of brash Israeli filmmakers landed in California in 1979, they were determined to take Hollywood by storm. After almost single-handedly birthing the Israeli film industry into existence, director and producer Menahem Golan and his financier cousin Yoram Globus bought the struggling production company Cannon Films for $500,000 and set out to remake it their image. During their decade at the helm of the Cannon Group, the duo forever changed the way that movies are made and enjoyed.” Four decades later, longtime fan Tarantino has personally selected several favorites from the studio’s extensive & entertaining output and will be on hand for a special panel discussion about Cannon Films.
