Warsaw Jewish Film Festival
The second Warsaw International Jewish Film Festival is set to take place in May, and organisers are looking for submissions. If you have a film thats over six minutes long and has a Jewish theme, it might just fit the bill.
Following the success of the first festival in 2004, the second Warsaw International Jewish film festival is set to take place from May 19-24 2005 and organisers are currently looking for submissions.
The first festival featured movies from all over the world, including the US, Israel, Argentina, Russia and France, as well as Poland itself. The organisers say one of the aims of the festival is to re-kindle the Polish audiences interest in Jewish culture and identity.
If you have a film thats over six minutes long, was made in 2003 or later and has a Jewish theme then it might just be what theyre looking for. The following types of film are eligible: feature, documentary, experimental or animated and they can be in any of these formats: 35mm, 16mm, BETACAM, SVHS, DV, and DVD.
The deadline for submitting films is: March 25 2005. For more information and to fill in an application form, visit the official website: www.warsawjff.ant.pl. You can send your film to:
