The JEWISH MOTIFS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is one of the biggest European festivals focused on Jewish themes in contemporary cinematography. We strive to show our audience the most interesting aspects of Jewish culture, history and tradition, and to promote tolerance and cultural diversity. Every year we receive hundreds of films from all over the world and present those which we feel are the most interesting and inquisitive. We accept only the latest cinematic offerings, produced no earlier than two years prior to the current edition of Festival.
The selected films take part in a competition and are judged by an international jury which includes film directors, screenwriters and critics. The most important criteria are Jewish impact, aesthetic value and craftsmanship.
