Thank you to the thousands of supporters across the UK for joining us at the UK Jewish Film Festival 2020!
We are delighted that our first ever online film festival, featuring 73 films from 16 countries and a range of special events including the Young Jury Award for Best Short Film, has attracted record audience viewing numbers with 21,823 views. The festival also reached record audiences nationwide with 37% of viewers tuning in from outside the Greater London area, compared with 26% in 2019.
“We are enormously grateful to our audiences who supported this first ever online festival in record numbers. It reinforces the importance of culture for the Jewish community’s wellbeing during the pandemic. We are very proud that this year, our unique range of films reflecting Jewish and Israeli life and experience, was able to reach more communities in every corner of the UK.” – Chief Executive Michael Etherton
