UK Jewish Film Festival
While the UK Jewish Film festival is currently on tour across the UK, Londoners will be able to get a taste of Jewish cinema over the spring season in March, April and May with three films to be shown at The Screen on the Hill in Belsize Park, north west London.
The three films are The First Time I Was Twenty, Live and Become and Campfire.
"These screenings are a wonderful opportunity for film fans to see three contemporary classics of Jewish cinema," said UK Jewish Film Festival producer Michael Etherton. "We are particularly pleased to be welcoming Lorraine Levy, the upcoming director of The First Time I Was Twenty, to the screening on March 15th."
The First Time I Was Twenty will be screened on 15th March and is based on Susie Morgensterns autobiographical coming-of-age novel set in 1960s France. Director Lorraine Levy will be holding a Q & A after the screening.
Live and Become to be screened on 5th April is about a child who is rescued from Ethiopia and goes to Israel, even though he is not Jewish and how he lives in the country.
Campfire to be screened on 24th May is an Israeli film about a young widow who wishes to join a group of people who are founding a new religious settlement.
Tickets for each film cost £15.
