22nd UK International Jewish Film Festival –
Submissions Now Open!

We strive to bring diverse audiences the best of Jewish cinema from around the globe – both at the annual UK International Jewish Film Festival in November, and through our extensive year-round film programme. We also aim to provide a platform for the best work from emerging filmmakers who would like to screen their new films with us.

If you have a brilliant new film that you think our audiences would love as much as you do, please make sure you submit it to us by the 30th of June this year. It will receive our full attention and we will write back to you with an answer by the end of September although we will unfortunately not be able to engage in any discussion about your film.

Competition is fierce – only a portion of the hundreds of films submitted to us last year were selected for the final programme, but those that made the cut gained wonderful exposure and invaluable feedback from our audiences across London and the UK.

My Mother’s Lost Children, Rachel and Shmita are some of the gems that were sent to us last year – all were included in our 2017 festival programme and delighted hundreds of cinemagoers. Could your film be our next big hit?

To submit your film, please follow these simple instructions:

Please send us your film and the Entry Form completed to: submissions@ukjewishfilm.org
