With the support and in cooperation with the Central Council of Jews in Germany, the "Summer School Jewish Film" invites master's and doctoral students from various disciplines to explore Jewish films.

The approximately 30 participants, who can apply for an open call nationwide, take part in workshops, lectures, talks and film events organized by the JFBB. On the one hand, Jewish film is understood as an opportunity to come into contact with Jewish life worlds, on the other hand, it is reflected upon as a media form in its aesthetics and history.

The Summer School is led by Prof. Dr. Doron Kiesel and film scholar Lea Wohl von Haselberg (Filmuniversität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf).

Official Invitation

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Students,
The Summerschool invites students and doctoral candidates of different disciplines to get to know the Jewish Film Festival Berlin Brandenburg and to deal with Jewish film history for five days. Jewish film is understood on the one hand in the program logic of Jewish film festivals, which open up a discursive space on Jewish topics with the films, and on the other hand as a media form in the context of Jewish culture.
on the other hand, it is reflected as a media form in its aesthetics and history.

The participants of the Summerschool have the opportunity to take part in workshops, lectures and discussions in the morning and to watch films of the festival program in the afternoon and evening. The program includes lectures on media studies, which will guide the critical examination of Jewish films, discuss them and situate them in disciplinary terms. Furthermore, the presentation of current research projects on Jewish film as well as discussions with filmmakers and on the festival curation are planned.
