History and mission
Established in 2003, the Warsaw Jewish Film Festival has been the first event of this kind in Poland. The aim of its organizers (The Camera of David WJFF Foundation is the main organizer of the festival) has been to create a space for the presentation of contemporary Jewish-themed movies, which have not been shown in Poland before. During the previous editions of the festival, we had a pleasure to present over 600 films from 30 countries. Apart from acclaimed movies and renowned filmmakers retrospectives, the festival lineup features directorial debuts. The organizers of the festival strive to present Jewish-themed cinema to Polish audiences by putting special emphasis on its intricacy and diversity.

Education
During a series of educational screenings following the festival in Warsaw, our foundation presents films, which teach about the Holocaust, promote tolerance , counter anti-Semitism and hate-speech. The screenings are held under the patronage of the main partner of the festival–the POLIN Museum and are organized together with a range of partners from all over Poland, such as: Jewish Culture Festival in Cracow and the Galicia Jewish Museum, the Edelman Dialogue Center in Lodz, Auschwitz Jewish Center, the Poland-Israel Center for Citizenship Education in Bialystok, and JCC Warsaw or abroad such as: Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival and Jerusalem Film Festival.
