Presenting a well-curated program focusing on loving, fierce, and honest struggles.

WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR?

What are we fighting for? Some are fighting for a state – or for their influence in one. Some are fighting for gender or identity rights. Other are competing for the right to a language, or simply for a better life for themselves and their loved ones.

In the film world we see such battles in the hundreds. And so we invite you to the 10th Copenhagen Jewish Film Festival, running from 25 to 28 February 2016. With a focus on fierce, loving, and honest struggles, we present the festival’s most qualified program so far.

Our desire is to present alternative perspectives on recognizable and often taboo subjects: The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, parent/child relationships, the banality of evil, and philosophy’s contribution to populist themes. Inspiration comes in part from our sister festivals in New York, London, San Francisco, Montreal, Budapest, Warsaw, Berlin, Jerusalem and Haifa.

Films often turn considerations upside down – rarely are things as black & white as people assume. We meet in the dark, as usual, and struggle together to understand the world we live in.

Copenhagen Jewish Film Festival is a serious contender for building bridges through culture and art. It is our hope to help promote a deeper conversation and a more tolerant society on the way. With the festival, we want to show how a curated film program can contribute to the coexistence of multiple cultures, values, and attitudes.

As always we offer debates, events, and meetings with instructors and opinion makers. Our ambition is to make the Cinematheque a four-day wonderland of Jewish topics and experiences. Tickets are on sale for 80 kr. (45 kr. for Cinematheque members). Read more about the films and events on this site (the Film Program is in Danish only, though most of the film trailers have English subtitles) and on our Facebook page.
