2016 UK International Jewish Film Festival

This has been an incredibly exciting and packed 20th anniversary UK International Jewish Film Festival, with a broader and more diverse range of films than ever before. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our supporters and sponsors and, of course, to you, our audiences across the UK.

Preview: Denial (SOLD OUT)

Written by feted playwright David Hare and starring Rachel Weisz and Timothy Spall, Denial is a gripping drama about the memory of the Holocaust and its victims. Accused of libel after declaring British historian David Irving is a Holocaust denier, American professor Deborah E. Lipstadt is required to prove not only her innocence but also that the Holocaust in fact happened. One of the most anticipated films of 2017.

Berlin’s legendary Café Nagler

Café Nagler was the crown of 1920s Berlin’s café culture: three-storied with a fancy bar and restaurant, and frequented by the likes of Einstein and Brecht. Or at least these were the stories Israeli filmmaker Mor Kaplansky, the great-granddaughter of the original owners, grew up on.

A heart-warming film about memory, myth-making and families, best enjoyed with a good cup of coffee and a slice of Gugelhof.

Back by popular demand: The Green Park

A lively and warm-hearted film about The Green Park Hotel that opened its doors in 1943 and for over forty years was a key hub of Anglo Jewish life. It provided kosher food, British seaside glamour and a place to introduce sons and daughters.

Compelling French drama: The Innocents

A piercing drama by Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel), provoking immediate comparisons to Pawel Pawlikowski’s Oscar-winning Ida, is set in a convent in a ravaged Poland at the end of WWII and based on a haunting true story.
