A BIG HEARTFELT THANK YOU!
THE 18TH WARSAW JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL IS NOW HISTORY. IT TOOK PLACE FROM NOVEMBER 16th TO 22nd and WE CAN ALREADY CONFIDENTLY SAY THE 18TH WJFF WAS A BIG SUCCESS!
This year’s edition was highly unusual due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing closure of cinemas. Nevertheless, we are glad that we decided to persevere and organize the festival in online format. Audience numbers exceeded our expectations and we are truly pleased to announce that during the festival week our screenings attracted nearly 40 thousand participants on three platforms (WJFF-Vimeo, Ninateka.pl and Tokfm.pl).
We would like to thank you for the interest shown in our event and for your tremendous activity on our social media.
