Jewish International Film Festival Short Film Fund – Submissions

February 12, 2023

Applications are open for the 2023 Jewish International Film Fund (JIFF), with a total grant pool of $10,000 is available for the production of two short films incorporating a Jewish theme, character, or story arc.

Launched in 2017, the fund was established to provide funding to Australian filmmakers for the completion of a Jewish-themed short film (narrative, documentary, or animation).

Most recently, the Fund was awarded to local filmmakers Karen Pearlman and Joel Kohn for their films I want to make a film about women and The Mirror. Still Alive, directed Anita Lester, and a recipient of the fund in 2017, screened at film festivals globally and was licensed by Yad Vashem as a part of their digital exhibition.

JIFF is seeking treatments and scripts for films under 10 minutes that are universally engaging and entertaining, and able to resonate with audiences from all backgrounds.

Applications close at 11:59pm on Sunday February 12, 2023, with the allocation of funding to be announced by the end of February.
