4th Brighton Jewish Film Festival
The 4th Brighton Jewish Film Festival ran from 11–25th November. The Celebrity Interview was with Chaim Topol, star of Fiddler on the Roof, one of the most famous Jewish films of all times. Many wonderful film clips featuring Topol illustrated the interview.
The BJFF also hosted the UK Premiere of Rabbi Lionel Blue’s first film, a documentary looking at how spirituality can help people face old age. After the film, Rabbi Blue was interviewed by media personality Simon Fanshawe. The final film showed was All My Loved Ones (directed by Matej Minac), the film’s story inspired by the real-life experiences of English stockbroker Nicholas Winton, who saved hundreds of Czech Jewish children from the Nazis. Matej Minac attended the screening.
