FESTIVAL REMINDER!!! UK JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL IN A WEEKS TIME...18:08:00
Hello My Lovely's,
We only have a week to wait until the UK Jewish Film Festival opens for its 17th year! Starting on the 30th of October the festival will host a packed programme of films, events and cinematic magic!
The festival will feature over 80 films and other special events across London, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. 53 of the films will be UK premieres, coming from countries all over the world including Argentina, Israel, USA, UK, Germany, France and the Czech Republic.
Comedy is hitting the festival hard this year with 'Blumenthal' starring Brian Cox as well as 'Afternoon Delight' (Find My Review Below) which are both ones to watch!
Females are also leaving their mark on the festival this year from award-winning writer/director Lucia Puenzo presenting her thriller 'Wakolda', a film which was a massive hit at Cannes and Toronto; as well as Tracie Holder, the director of the documentary 'Joe Papp In Five Acts'.
New Israeli cinema is presenting 'The Congress' at the festival; Yariv Horowitz’s 'Rock The Casbah' and 'Big Bad Wolves' which has been named by Tarantino as the best film of the year!
Along with the 53 films that will be showing there will also be 27 documentaries on display this year, including a piece on the London filmmaker Marc Isaacs, award-winning 'Art/Violence' about the Freedom Theatre founded by Juliano Mer-Khamis and 'Dancing In Jaffa' about one man’s determination to teach Palestinian and Israeli school children to dance together.
The festival is also a new VOD Channel this year with those lovely people over at Think Jam which can be found at the link below...
