Who we are

UK Jewish Film is the home for Jewish film in the UK. At the core of UK Jewish Film’s mission as a cultural charity is the notion that film is universal. It crosses cultures and divides and has the ability to unite, engage and educate diverse audiences through the telling of cinematic stories that provide stimulating, interesting and unique views of Jewish and Israeli life and culture.

The charity’s objects are to educate and create better awareness in the public of the history, culture and heritage of Jewish people; to combat antisemitism, racism and prejudice; and to build greater tolerance and understanding between communities, in particular through the medium of film.

This is achieved by the curation, promotion and presentation of an annual festival of British and international films that engage with Jewish themes, presented to diverse audiences in London and other cities across the UK; a programme of screenings and events year-round, educational programmes aimed especially at young people, a video on demand platform, a short film fund commissioning original and high quality new cinematic work that reflects British Jewish life and culture, and a ‘Filmlab’ offering support for emerging filmmakers. Additionally, the charity brings Holocaust education workshops to schools and provides online resources to educators.
