The Icon Festival for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Role-Playing is an annual festival which takes place on October 5-8th for the 24rd time. Icon is a red-letter day for fans of the SF&F (both literature and cinema) and RPGs, and its 4-day diverse program attracts people of all ages.

In the application you can view the program and event details, build a personal program with the events that you find interesting, be notified before they start and send feedback on the events. You can also receive real time updates during the convention.
Note that the application is in Hebrew only.

This year’s festival theme is “Choices”, and will consist of more than 200 events, including lectures, RPG sessions, panel discussions, cosplay contests, comical and musical shows, providing a huge celebration for the science fiction and fantasy lovers and even much broader audiences. Due to the public gathering restriction in Israel, this year the festival will go virtual and the contents will be presented online, with 3 live streams of the festival’s events, with audience participation.

Icon is produced by non-for-profit organizations that work all year long to promote fandom and creators of science fiction, fantasy and role-playing, and strive to make these genres more accessible to their audience. We also take pride in providing the stage to independent filmmakers and young authors.

The Icon Festival is a seminal cultural event, made possible due to the passion and hard work of hundreds of volunteers, from the festival director to the last but not least staff member. Their only reward is the festival itself as all income is used to pay for the facilities and cover expenses.

Guests of Honor at the Icon Festival

One of our most popular features at Icon is to meet world-class known authors, directors and actors.
