We wish you a happy Hanukkah and start the submission for the JFBB 2023 today

Dear friends of the JFBB,

as of now films can be submitted for the 29th Jewish Film Festival Berlin | Brandenburg.

The JFBB will take place from June 13 to 18, 2023 in Berlin and Potsdam.

We are looking for feature films, documentaries, series, short films, animated films and experimental films that deal with Jewish life and culture in the past and present, as well as films with Jewish main actors or by Jewish filmmakers.

films can be submitted online here.

The JFBB presents the diversity of Jewish filmmaking in several sections, including the two competitions for feature films (preferably German premieres) and feature-length documentaries (German premieres).

For further information please refer to the regulations of the Jewish Film Festival Berlin | Brandenburg.

We look forward to your submissions and wish Chag Chanukka Sameach - A Happy Hanukkah! 🕎

Sunday 12/18 marks the beginning of Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

We celebrate the miracle that a small vial of oil, which normally burns for one day, burned for eight days. Therefore, we light the Channukiah for eight days to commemorate this.

We wish you and your loved ones a happy, warm and light-filled holiday season.

We bring our light to the movie theaters to dispel the darkness and hope you will join us at JFBB in 2023!

Chag Chanukah Sameach 🕎
& Shabbat Shalom
