The UK Jewish Film Festival 2007

10 Nov 200715 Nov 2007

"A true-ish, Jewish kind of movie party" The Independent

The ICA is proud to be part of the UK Jewish Film Festival 2007 with a selection of films that cover subjects from a gay Israeli man's search for his 'missing piece' to echoes of the Holocaust in the corridors of corporate Paris and two very different and moving portraits of families dealing with dark pasts.

There are special events too, with a panel discussion, 'Sexual and other Politics - Jews, Activism and Identity ', following the screening of Jerusalem is Proud to Present and a post-screening Q&A with Jamie Kastner, director of Kike Like Me.

The UKJFF takes place in venues across London this November. See www.ukjewishfilmfestival.org.uk for details.
