'Intimate Grammar' opens the 25th annual fest

Liev Schreiber, Charles Bronf-man and Israeli producer-helmer Micha Shagrir are all on tap to receive awards during the opening night gala of the 25th Israel Film Festival in Gotham.

Fest, which runs May 5-19, will open with a screening of Nir Bergman’s “Intimate Grammar.” Coming-of-ager set in 1960s Israel bowed during the 2010 Jerusalem fest and has made festival-circuit stops in Tokyo, Miami and Paris.

Schreiber scores IFF’s achievement in film kudo, while philanthropist Bronfman will take home the humanitarian laurel. Shagrir, a vet of the Israeli film and TV industry, gets the cinematic achievement award.

IFF is produced annually by Gotham nonprofit IsraFest Foundation. Opening night gala is set for May 5 at the Paris Theater in Manhattan.
