The BJFF became a national Film Festival, changing its name from The Brighton Jewish Film Festival to the UK Jewish Film Festival. Paul Morrison’s Wondrous Oblivion opened the Festival, Morrison attending the screening and participating in a Q&A after it. The screening was followed by a launch party at the Brighton Sea Life Centre and was attended by the Mayor of Brighton and Hove City among other MPs and celebrities.
Zoe Wanamaker was the UKJFF Celebrity Interviewee.
The first Limmud Fest took place in December of this year.
