Jewish Film Festival 2013 Last year's Jewish Film Festival was a cracker with amongst others the outstanding Paolo Sorrentino Sean Penn starrer This Must Be The Place becoming one of my favourite films and John Madden's The Debt one of the finest releases from last year.

The  Jewish Film Festival has grown from strength to strength and is a great opportunity to see some great films ahead of their release at one of its 80 screenings and other special events across five cities - London, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.  53 of the films will be UK premieres, hailing from countries including Argentina, Israel, USA, UK, Germany, France and the Czech Republic running from 30 October – 17 November 2013.

The 17th annual UK Jewish Film Festival launches on 30 October with an Opening Night Gala at the BFI Southbank with the UK Premiere of The Jewish Cardinal, introduced by award-winning French director Ilan Duran Cohen.  This gripping, star-studded historical drama tells the story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the Jewish-born head of the French Church and close confidant of Pope John-Paul II.  With possibly the most mischievous portrayal of a pontiff in cinematic history, The Jewish Cardinal is a tour de force about what it means to walk the tightrope of faith and identity.


The festival follows with an exciting array of films and events which run until the Closing Night Gala on 17 November with the UK Premiere of Eytan Fox’s Cupcakes.  This hilarious and heart-warming musical comedy about life, love and friendship is the guiltiest pleasure of the year.


At the press launch, Festival Founder & Executive Director Judy Ironside MBE introduced some of the highlights of the festival including the UK premiere of the dazzling new comedy Blumenthal from New York writer/director Seth Fisher starring actor Brian Cox CBE. (Both will attend Festival screening for Q&A - 6 Nov, Phoenix Cinema, 20:45)


Other highlights include the UK premiere of the award-winning US documentary Joe Papp In Five Acts, a portrait of the legendary New York theatre producer Joe Papp.  The screening will be followed by a discussion, with actor Zoe Wanamaker CBE & director Tracie Holder (14 Nov, Barbican, 18:15), on A New Democratic Theatre For The UK.


Comedian and filmmaker Jes Benstock was at the launch warming up the audience for his special Festival Comedy Event to be presented with Scottish Jewish comedian Arnold Brown, and a host of witty friends including Miriam Margolyes, Bill Paterson, David Schneider and Helen Lederer.


Other guests attending the festival will include the esteemed Lord Michael Grade who will speak after Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy (13 Nov, Barbican, 18:15); award-winning French director Ilan Duran Cohen who will be opening the festival with his gripping historical drama The Jewish Cardinal (30 Oct, BFI, 20:30); Czech writer/director David Ondricek presenting his debut feature In the Shadow (2 Nov, Tricycle, 19:00); and Israeli film director Eytan Fox who will close the festival on a high note with his heart-warming musical comedy Cupcakes (17 Nov, Tricycle 19:45).


Other festival highlights include the UK Premiere of thriller Wakolda (5 Nov, Tricycle, 21:00), the new film from award-winning Argentinean director Lucia Puenzo; the Tribeca award-winning Israeli drama Room 514 (3 Nov, Tricycle, 20:30); and an Exclusive Preview of The Congress (10 Nov, Odeon Swiss Cottage Imax Screen, 21:00), Ari Folman’s impressive follow-up to Waltz with Bashir.

"We are so pleased to announce the programme for the 17th UK Jewish Film Festival. With more than 80 films from 24 countries this is an exceptionally strong year and we look forward to bringing you a wealth of talented guests and films to inspire and engage you on a diverse range of themes."
