From October 25th to 31st, Warsaw will be hosting the 11th edition of Jewish Film Festival. This year the Warsaw Jewish Film Festival is dedicated to remarkable Polish writer and director Tadeusz Konwicki. He will be awarded the 2013 Honorary David Camera for his contribution into the film and literature through his memory about the world of Polish Jews.

Among 16 movies that will be shown there is the Oscar nominated "The Gatekeepers". Apart from the film screenings there will be also a video-installation of several short films about the Holocaust, belonging to artvideoKOELN collection from Germany under the Patronage of European Parliament.

Warsaw Jewish Film Festival's aim is to propagate the awareness of the centuries-old Jewish history, culture and tradition. It has been organized for the first time in 2003 as the first such event in Eastern Europe. Since that time it presented 520 films from 28 countries. Many of them are Oscar nominees and more than ten are actual Oscar winners. The list of laureates of Honorary David Camera includes: Agnieszka Holland, Andrzej Wajda, Roman Polanski, Gustaw Holoubek, Woody Allen and the Coen Brothers.

The screenings take place in two locations on both banks of the Vistula river: Praga Cinema as well as the newly opened Museum of The History of The Polish Jews, which is festival's new partner.

The festival starts on Friday 25th at 8pm. The tickets cost 7 zł. The admission to screenings at the Museum is free.
