UK: Tricycle Theatre refuses to host Jewish Film Festival over Israeli sponsorship

A major London theatre has refused to host the UK Jewish Film Festival because it is sponsored by the Israeli embassy. 
The Tricycle Theatre was scheduled to be the main venue for the UKJFF in November, with 26 films due to be screened there as well as six gala events. 
But in a statement issued on Tuesday, UKJFF executive director Judy Ironside said: “The Tricycle told us that they cannot be associated with a festival which in turn is associated with the UK’s Israel embassy”.
