From humble beginnings, this year is our biggest yet, and we’re delighted to present the very best of Israeli and Jewish-themed cinema, from all across the globe.

With 68 premiere features and documentaries from 19 countries including Argentina, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Morocco, the Netherlands, Poland, South Africa, Spain, UK and USA, we’re thrilled to continue to celebrate the infinite diversity of our fascinating culture through drama, humour and suspense.

Films will be screened at Academy Cinemas in Auckland from 10 Nov. For more information, go to
