Save the Date for the 19th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival 2021! The Festival will take place in-person & online November 15-21.

Our event, as in previous years, will last 7 days and as every year, we will present our viewers a variety of the newest and the best feature and documentary films with Jewish theme. Films selected from the best international and Jewish film festivals from all over the world. We are in the process of creating a safe and accessible Festival where our audiences and artists can come together to celebrate and discover new work, and each other.
