The Jewish Film Festival in Barcelona is one of the most anticipated events of its kind in Europe dedicated exclusively to celebrating the artistry and creativity of Jewish culture, which is itself inextricably bound to the city and to Spain. The event has been taking place annually since 1999 and each year it delivers a new and diverse series of cinematic and artistic projects to the public. No stone is left unturned in this impressive collection, as a variety of genres and topics are explored in great depth; from documentaries and feature films to independent shorts and audiovisual pieces, with this year’s edition featuring Rabin, The Last Day directed by Amos Gitai, the documentary short Munich 72 and Beyond and A Tale of Love and Darkness starring Natalie Portman. The films will all be shown in their original language, but there will also be Spanish or Catalan subtitles depending on the film.
The festival will take place from September 20th until October 1st at the Filmoteca de Catalunya. The film screenings start in the evening and the times vary. Tickets for each film will cost the same as the cinema’s general admittance price. More information and the official programme can be found here.
