  The UK Jewish Film Festival 2018 [read more]
  L'Chaim!
  The UK Jewish Film Festival is delighted to announce this year's Festival Galas for its 22nd edition. The festival will run from 8th-22nd November 2018 at cinemas across London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Brighton and Glasgow.

This year’s Opening Night Gala is the UK Premiere of Working Woman, directed by Michal Aviad and starring Liron Ben Shlush, Menashe Noy and Oshri Cohen and has been nominated for the Dorfman Best Film Award and will celebrate its Gala Screening at the BFI Southbank on 8th November. This remarkable new Israeli drama could hardly be more timely. Orna, an ambitious career woman, takes a new job as a real estate marketing manager, selling luxurious apartments to overseas buyers. Determined to prove herself to Benny, her new boss, she is willing to sacrifice her family life and free time. But when Benny’s flirting turns into harassment, Orna struggles to restore her sense of dignity and self-worth. Superbly acted and written, Working Woman is a cautionary tale for our times.

This year's Closing Night Gala is Promise At Dawn starring Charlotte Gainsbourg (Best Actress Cesar Nomination) and Pierre Niney and directed by Eric Barbier. Nominated for the Dorfman Best Film Award and Best Screenplay Award, the Gala Screening will take place at Curzon Mayfair on 22nd November and then at the Komedia Brighton on 28th November. Charlotte Gainsbourg shines as the overbearing Jewish mother in this powerful adaptation of Romain Gary's memoir. Believing in his potential from infancy and relentlessly pushing him to fulfil it, she was instrumental in her son becoming one of France's 20th century literary giants. Although she is often delusional, her resourcefulness saves them from destitution in Lithuania and takes them to their promised land, France. Heartbreaking and funny in equal measure, Promise at Dawn is an ode to mother-child relationships - specifically Jewish yet universally relatable.

The festival's special Centrepiece Gala is the UK Premiere of Three Identical Strangers, an extraordinary documentary directed by Tim Wardle which won the Special Jury prize at Sundance Film Festival. Raised by their respective adoptive families within a hundred-mile radius of each other, triplet siblings Robert Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman were oblivious to the fact that each had two identical brothers until a chance meeting brought them together, aged 19, for the first time since birth. Their astounding story, which became a worldwide sensation in the early 1980s, catapulted them to fame with the trio landing a cameo in Desperately Seeking Susan and becoming a fixture in Studio 54. But even more incredible was the reason, unknown to them at first, that led to their separation in the first place. This astonishing, stranger-than-fiction documentary masterfully tells a story whose sanguine elements could not mitigate the gross injustice at its core.
