JIFF 2019 Audience Awards

Man on the Bus Screening Sundays in December

Man on the Bus

What Will Become of Us In cinemas December 12

What Will Become of Us

Thank you!

Thanks for sharing the 2019 Jewish International Film Festival with us; as always, it was a pleasure and a privilege to present our program to audiences across Australia.

From the wisdom of Dr Ruth to Taika Waititi's searing satire, and a whole festival inbetween, JIFF 2019 has born witness to stories that encompass the great diversity of the Jewish experience. Documentaries unravelling extraordinary true stories screened alongside feature films and series from around the globe, and this year, we championed local tales: Man on the Bus from Melburnian filmmaker Eve Ash, and What Will Become of Us, which explored the genesis and journey of Sir Frank Lowy.

We want to know your film of the festival, and need your help in crowning the Audience Award winners. Vote by selecting your favourite film on the 'Vote Now' page; we can't wait to see what comes up tops! All voters will stand a chance to win a 10-pass for JIFF 2020, with entries closing December 8. 

If you missed it at the festival, Australian documentary Man on the Bus continues screening on Sundays across December (Melbourne only). Frank Lowy documentary What Will Become Of Us releases on December 12 at the Classic, Lido and Ritz Cinemas, and Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love comes to Classic (Dec 26) and Ritz (Dec 12) Cinemas.
