 From Israel, France and Australia, to the Yiddish-speaking neighbourhoods of Brooklyn, to award-winners and critics favourites; JIFF presents 65 films from across the globe that celebrate the remarkable diversity of Jewish culture and storytelling.

The tradition of screening the cream of the crop of Israeli film continues with many films coming directly from film festivals in Cannes, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Venice, Tribeca and Berlin. “We made our selection after seeing more than 300 films during the past year,” said Tamir to The Australian Jewish News “and this year we present the strongest Australian line-up in our history.”
