We are approaching the 20th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival „DAVID’S CAMERA” – the oldest and the biggest Jewish film festival in Poland and one of the firsts in Europe.
The Festival takes place annually since 2003. We have screened over 1000 films from all over the world. Among them were features and documentaries showing contemporary cinema, touching subjects connected with diasporas and modern Israel. Despite the fact that present times, followed by „looking forward into the future” approach being the trademark of David’s Camera Foundation, were important part of our message, we have never forgotten the past, especially the history of Shoah.
Let’s meet in person at cinemas!
This year’s edition will take place November 14th- 30th. We invite you to celebrate our jubilee as we have been present on the festival map of Poland for two decades now.
20th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival will begin on November 14th in the POLIN Museum and November 15th at KINOGRAM CINEMA. For the next ten days after the festival has finished some films will be also available online, Poland-wide!
In our program there will be RETROSPECTIVES OF ACKNOWLEDGED FILMMAKERS and permanent sections: MODERN ISRAELI CINEMA, GERMAN JEWISH CINEMA, PRE-WAR POLISH YIDDISH CINEMA, WJFF SHORTS. This year we will present new section: WOMEN VOICES.
The Festival is also a place for INTERNATIONAL FEATURE AND DOCUMENTARIES COMPETITION. The Jury will award films with DAVID’S CAMERA in the following categories: Grand Prix, Best Feature Film, Best Documentary, Best Short Feature and Best Short Documentary.
You can also take part in many accompanying events: film-culinary workshops, film education and film workshops for schools and kids, exhibition LET'S TALK ABOUT ISRAEL in cooperation of Embassy of Israel in Poland, BOKERTOW in JCC Warsaw, MITZVA PROGRAM in the HERITAGE GALLERY in the POLIN Museum.
