The 16th Warsaw Jewish Film Festival took place from November 12th to November 18th, 2018 at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, PRAHA Cinema and JCC Warsaw.

The POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews was the main partner of the festival for the 6th time. The event was held under the honorary patronage of the Marshal of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship Adam Struzik. The festival’s program included over 30 films from Israel, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, France, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, the United States, Great Britain, Russia and Australia. This year’s festival was dedicated to the late Israeli filmmaker and actress Ronit Elkabezt.
