    We strongly encourage you to take part in the competition, and watch the films during the Festival!

     The JEWISH MOTIFS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is one of the biggest European festivals focused on Jewish themes in contemporary cinematography. The idea is to show the audience the most interesting aspects of Jewish culture, history and tradition, and to promote tolerance and cultural diversity.

    The selected films take part in a competition and are judged by an international jury which includes film directors, screenwriters and critics. The most important criteria are Jewish impact, aesthetic value and craftsmanship.

    The Festival films compete in the following categories:

    * Best Feature

    * Best Documentary

    * Best Short / Animation

    The Festival prizes are:

    * The statues of the Warsaw Phoenix - a symbol of revival

    * Cash prizes (amounting to $25 000)

    The organizers of the Jewish Motifs IFF cover the following expenses:

    - travelling costs (return ticket) for the film director (one person per production)

    - accommodation costs in Warsaw (hotel in the city center) for one person per production (or two persons in a double/twin room)

    For pre-selection, films must be produced in 2011 or later.

    Please send PAL DVD (with English subtitles) only.

    The submission deadline is 5th January 2013.
