The Jewish Film Festival captures the diversity of Jewish life on celluloid. For two weeks, from the 2nd till the 11th of July, filmmakers from all over the world present a varied programme.

The festival takes film fans on a journey around the world of Jewish and Israeli filmmaking and features some of the best and latest productions from different countries. Several premieres, filmmakers and discussions allow the visitors to take a glimpse into the world of Jewish life. Some of the films shown were made in Israel, one of the most exciting filmmaking countries of the world.

Founded in 1995 on the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, the Berlin/Potsdam Jewish Film Festival is one of the oldest of its kind in Europe. This unique cultural event in Germany, aimed at film lovers of any background, is a showcase for new cinema that explores Jewish life in Germany and around the world.

The Festival offers perspectives rarely seen in the daily stream of headlines and broadcast news. The film screenings provide a lively forum for dialogue and debate about a wide range of issues, drawing larger audiences every year.
