Jerusalem is packed full, year-round with festivals to intrigue and entice visitors with a wide selection of activities to cater for the eternally curious. There is no one single festival highlight, but rather a collection of events that should be attended if at all possible. High up on the list is the Jerusalem Film Festival, which attracts some of the best talent from around the globe. A 10-day movie fest with special screenings, honorary guests, panels and special events it's an opportunity to see foreign as well as Israeli movies from all sections of the religious, cultural and national divide.
Another stand-out festival is the Hutzot Hayotser Arts and Crafts Festival, which takes place annually in August, in and around the Artists Colony.

Also very popular is the Light Festival, which by following different colored neon lights attached to the old city walls, you can take the lighted path that interests you and get a very different feel of night-time in the mystical, mysterious and wonderful Old City
