The UK Jewish Film Festival Awards recognise achievement in both fiction and documentary feature-length films. We are determined to ensure that nurturing and supporting new creative talent is at the heart of the festival and delighted to include our Best Debut Feature Award, now in its 4th year.
The Best Debut Feature Award recognises new filmmaking talent that displays originality and freshness of vision from a first-time feature film director. The winner of the Best Debut Feature Award will be announced at the Closing Weekend Gala on Sunday 20 November 2016.
The jury is led by Nik Powell, producer and director of National Film and Television School, and also includes the film critic Peter Bradshaw, actor Tracy-Ann Oberman and filmmaker Sean McAllister.
