Innovative, entertaining, provocative, the UK Jewish Film Festival is one of the UK's most established and much loved film festivals. We bring our audiences across London and other cities approx. 150 screenings of 90 high quality, international films at 20 cinemas. Since 2020 we have also run a successful online festival. We are focussed on films that reflect Jewish stories and themes, and our film genres include feature drama, documentary, short and experimental. Many of our films include additional events with panel discussions, Q&As with directors, actors, journalists and others. As well as our theatrical screenings we have a popular year-round streaming platform and there are opportunities for getting your film out to much wider audiences through this medium. Year-round we screen an additional 400-500 screenings in London, Manchester and Glasgow so your film may achieve a greater reach beyond the festival as well.
