Jewish Film Festival

Jewish Film Festival Berlin
12.00 - 23.00 Various Venues

The Jewish Film festival of Berlin & Potsdam does exactly what it says and celebrates films made by Jewish film-makers and about Jewish themes both from inside Germany and globally. As you would expect the subject matter often sparks lively debate.

You will probably be surprised at just how many films there are out there on this topic and included are some of the top Hollywood names too. The films are in several categories like many other film festivals, from documentaries to shorts and full length features, and the theme this year is “We Come In Peace”.

While the full programme has not been confirmed yet we can give you an idea of the top quality of films from a pick of last year’s best:

In The Shadow – David Ondricek

A gritty crime thriller set in communist era Czechoslovakia, In The Shadow does not pull the punches. Exposing the show trials that condemned many innocents to death in Prague you will need to have a strong stomach to sit through to the end.

Prisoners of War – Alexander Soyez

Imagine being locked up for 17 years – could you take it? And if you survived would you be able to readjust to normal life after being rescued? The Prisoners of War TV series explores the experiences of a family in just such a situation. The series was the inspiration for the US hit Homeland.

Out In The Dark – Michael Mayer

This is a love story with darker undercurrent of politics. Out In The Dark sees one night change the lives of two young men in Tel Aviv. They meet, fall in love and try to overcome the political, familial and religious obstacles in their way.
