Welcome

Welcome to JIFF 2018 — our jam-packed program is now live online, and at all our participating cinemas. Download a PDF of the print program here, or pick one up at your closest cinema or in tomorrows Australian Jewish News. All tickets are now on sale!

Travel across time and place with our 64 features and documentaries: from Opening Night film The Interpreter, bold satire "I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History As Barbarians", sprawling French biopic Promise at Dawn, retrospective features The City Without Jews and An Ancient Law, Closing Night film The Unorthodox, and many, many more.

We're so proud of our diverse, challenging, thought-provoking and (we hope) wildly entertaining program of carefully curated films and events. We encourage you to dive deep into the program — gather your friends and family, and settle in with your highlighters and sticky notes this long weekend to plan your 2018 festival immersion.

5, 10 and 20 passes are available to purchase online and at the Classic, Lido, Cameo, Event Cinemas Bondi Junction and Greater Union Morley box offices, and - tell your kids and friends - discounted tickets are available for under thirties at all JIFF cinemas’ box offices.
