Barcelona Jewish Film Festival

15 days celebrating contemporary Jewish Cinema

The 20th edition of the Barcelona Jewish Film Festival features 13 films from around the world.

September sees the 20th edition of the Barcelona Jewish Film Festival, which aims to provide a showcase for different visions of Jewish history, life and culture throughout the world. In this edition, 13 films produced in nine different countries, including eight documentaries and five fictional works, tackle the themes of history and politics, family and religion, literature, music and the cinema are presented as tools of subversion or testimony. This 20th edition of the festival coincides with the centenary of the establishment of the first Jewish community in Catalonia, following the expulsion of the Jews from the peninsula in 1492, represented by the Israeli Community of Barcelona (CIB), which was the driving force behind the construction of the first synagogue in Spain in Barcelona. Many of the film screenings will be preceded by a presentation by someone involved in the film, mostly directors. Among the films on the programme are Simon et Théodore (Mikael Buch), The Oslo Diaries (Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan), L’enfance d’Aharon (Arnaud Sauli) and An Act of Defiance (Jean van de Velde).

The screenings will take place at the Filmoteca de Catalunya, CCCBAteneu Barcelonès and Casa Adret from 15 to 30 September.

Tickets cost €4 and can be bought from the venues’ box offices. Additional information is available at the following link.
