"Her"

EARLIER: Founded in May 2013, the Israeli Film Critics Association presents the first winners for their year-end film awards.

The voting was modeled on the NYFCC methods, and the awards are for Israeli films released theatrically in Israel in 2013. And one Best Foreign Film category.

Best Foreign Film: Gravity, Alfonso Cuaron

(Leos Carax's Holy Motors and Pablo Larrain's No were runner-ups)

Best Israeli Film: Big Bad Wolves, directed by Nevot Papushado and Aharon Keshales (it will be released in the States by Magnet in January)

Best direction: A Tie (after three rounds of voting): Big Bad Wolves and Bethlehem (directed by Yuval Adler). Bethlehem is Israel's official entry to the Oscars.

Best Screenplay: "S#x Acts" by Rona Segal (directed by Jonathan Gurfinkel). Currently playing in NYC.

Best Actor: Hitam Omary, "Bethlehem"

Best Actress: Sivan Levy, "S#x Acts"

Newcomer Award: Tom Shoval, the first-time director of "Youth"

Best technical achievement: Ari Folman, Yoni Goodman, David Polonsky and the animation team of "The Congress", for the design and animation of this groundbreaking film (coincidentally, it won best animation film at the European Film Awards last night).

The Israeli Film Critic Association is affiliated with FIPRESCI. Mr. Pablo Utin was voted chairman of the group.
