The 19th UK Jewish Film Festival returns from 7th-22nd November 2015.
This year’s programme of more than 80 international films is exciting and varied, including star-studded galas such as Closer to the Moon and Septembers of Shiraz; landmark films such as the much feted Son of Saul, which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival 2015; films that showcase new British talent such as the world premiere of Orthodox; extraordinary real life stories from the hijack docudrama Sabena to the biting humour of Look at us Now Mother!; movies full of joy and laughter such as 5 to 7 and What’s in a Name; and the latest and best in contemporary Israeli cinema from the award-winning Kindergarten Teacher; to Princess, which premiered at Sundance to great acclaim; Yona, the wonderful biopic about Israel’s most celebrated poet; Manpower and Hotline which explore the issue of immigration in Israel; JeruZalem, the mesmerising horror film shot in the alleyways and holy sites of Jerusalem; and Fauda, one of the best TV series to come out of Israel, which will be screened in its entirety over 3 evenings.
There is something for everyone! We look forward to welcoming you to this celebration of the diversity and creativity of Jewish and Israeli film culture.See full list of festival films and screenings
