The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, London has reponded to protests at
the theatre last year against their hosting of the 2013 Israeli Film
Festival. Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director of the Tricycle said
in relation to their decisoin to withdraw form the 2014 festival, “The
festival receives funding from the Israeli embassy and given the current
conflict in Israel and Gaza, we feel it is inappropriate to accept financial
support from any government agency involved.”

The Tricycle Theatre is a leading London fringe theatre with a distinguished
record of mounting radical plays.
