This festival of Jewish cinema returns to Sydney

The Jewish International Film Festival hits town this October and November, showcasing more than 60 films from 23 countries. This year’s festival will include 31 feature films and 28 documentaries, including Love, Gilda, a film dedicated to comedy legend and original Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner.

JIFF's opening night film will be comedy-tragedy The Interpreter, which tells the tale of a Holocaust survivor who wishes to seek revenge on the former SS officer who killed his parents but instead ends up on a road trip with the officer’s son. Other highlights of the program include Russian historical movie Sobibor and Seder Masochism, an animated musical comedy film featuring animation by American artist Nina Paley.  

The Jewish International Film Festival will screen at Event Cinemas in Bondi Juction and Roseville Cinemas. Check out the full program here.
