Welcome

After a jam-packed five weeks of inspiring, exhilarating, challenging and diverse film screenings, events and storytelling across 8 locations in 6 cities, our most expansive JIFF has come to a close! With 69 Australian Premiere films traversing genre and form, this year's festival travelled around the country and over the seas, bringing the best of Israeli and Jewish-themed content to Australian and New Zealand audiences. With over 700 screenings, JIFF is amongst the biggest and most prestigious Jewish film festivals in the world: and we hold dear our dedicated and passionate audience that only continues to thrive.

We’ll be returning in October/November 2017: stay tuned for JIFF Distribution titles releasing in cinemas throughout the year, and catch up on previous titles through our JIFF Video on Demand. Israeli Bedouin drama, Sand Storm, and Australian documentary, Monsieur Mayonnaise, are out now on theatrical release; and immersive family documentary, Aida’s Secrets, opens at the Classic and Lido Cinemas on December 8.
