Featuring films from around the globe, the 14th annual Festival of Jewish Cinema is a celebration of the diversity of Jewish culture and its undeniable influence on the world of cinema.
Jewish culture and film are indelibly linked. The original heads of every major Hollywood motion picture studio were Jews who had left Europe in search of a better life, and in doing so they enriched a medium that has become a mainstay of our civilisation.
This year's program invites audiences to experience the rich diversity of Jewish cinema through an event that has become a major highlight in Melbourne's arts calendar.
This year's line-up promises to feature a fantastically eclectic range of new feature films and documentaries - many of the films directly from the Berlin and Cannes Film Festivals. Delve into this year's festival at ACMI's state-of-the-art, comfort-enhanced cinemas.
The 2003 Festival of Jewish Cinema will run Wednesday 12 November - Sunday 30 November.
