Jewish International Film Festival

October 25, 2022 - December 7, 2022

The Jewish International Film Festival (JIFF) returns to cinemas across Australia this October for its 30th anniversary year.

The upcoming festival edition, the second for 2022 following a rescheduled 2021 festival that played in cinemas in March, is JIFF’s most geographically expansive yet, screening across nine venues in seven cities. For the first time, JIFF screens at the iconic State Cinema in Hobart, and the new Dendy Cinemas site in Southport (Gold Coast, Queensland).

Kicking off the season with an all-star Opening Night will be the Australian premiere of James Gray’s (Ad Astra) Cannes hit Armageddon Time starring Anthony Hopkins, Anne Hathaway and Jeremy Strong. Closing Night brings additional star power with Mayim Bialik’s (Big Bang Theory, Beaches) directorial debut As They Made Us, starring Dustin Hoffman and Candice Bergen.

The bumper 2022 season boasts 30 feature films, 20 documentaries, episodes from 2 TV series, plus 3 critically acclaimed short films from 21 different countries, and features an unprecedented 47 Australian Premieres, 1 World Premiere and 1 International Premiere.

The JIFF 2022 season will also feature a series of special events bringing to life the program including special musical performances from Simon Starr and Anita Lester as they celebrate storytelling through song for Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen, mime performances commemorating Marcel Marceau for The Art of Silence, virtual Q&A screenings with the filmmakers and a live concert featuring iconic tunes performed in Yiddish to celebrate 150 years of Yiddish musicals.
