Post-Festival Preview: Menashe

A special preview screening of one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year.

The first Yiddish-language film in many years, Menashe is a rare and sensitive portrayal of the Orthodox community in Brooklyn.

29 Nov, Phoenix



An enjoyable and endearing comedy about Jewish families and following your dreams. Our young heroine pins all her hopes on getting into Amsterdam’s leading drama college but she’s a complete flop at the audition and ends up taking a job in the cafeteria instead.

15 – 19 October, JW3


The 90 Minute War

A brilliant new tongue-in-cheek comedy that attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict via a football match. They have tried it all: wars and peace processes, terror attacks and closures, road checks and Intifadas. After long decades of futile attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is only one solution left. Based on a successful Israeli novel of the same name, The 90-Minute War – directed by veteran Israeli director Eyal Halfon and starring Moshe Ivgy – offers a thought-provoking take on the conflict, and an ingenious plan for a resolution.

22 – 26 October, JW3


Rabbi Wolff: A Gentleman Before God

Having started his career as a rabbi at 70, William Wolff, now nearly 90, is not your average man. Born into an Orthodox family in Berlin, Wolff moved to England with his parents at the age of 12. He was a successful political correspondent before deciding on pursuing his dream of becoming a rabbi, a decision that brought him back to his homeland.

29 October – 2 November, JW3
