The 2012 UK Jewish Film Festival opens in style with the UK premiere of the romantic comedy PARIS-MANHATTAN on 1st November at the BFI Southbank in London and at Manchester’s Parrs Wood Cineworld.
Informed by the eternal wisdom of Woody Allen, debut writer/director Sophie Lellouche’s delightful film is about a young woman whose choices in life and love are shaped by the philosophies of her favourite filmmaker.
This year’s UK Jewish Film Festival runs from November 1st to 18th, and will show more than 50 feature films, documentaries, short films, and TV specials from all over the world at venues across London. In a first for the festival, simultaneous screenings will take place in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, and Glasgow.
Since its foundation in 1997 by UKJF Executive Director Judy Ironside, the UK Jewish Film Festival has provided an unrivalled showcase for works on Jewish themes by filmmakers from all over the world. The 2012 UKJFF will present more than 40 UK premieres from Israel, UK, France, Holland, USA, Croatia, Portugal, Austria, Sweden, Brazil and more; many have already garnered awards from festivals like Tribeca, Sundance and Cannes.
