The 3rd Geneva International Jewish Film Festival will take place from the 12th-14th April 2013. We are delighted to present a programme of international films exploring Jewish cultures and experience, and to bring to the Festival some of the outstanding filmmakers and actors who create these films.
As the President of this unique Festival in Geneva I am delighted to welcome you to the 3rd edition. The GIJFF is a Festival of film that brings you opportunities to see the best and latest international films with Jewish themes. Through the power of film we can entertain and enlighten audiences worldwide about Jewish life and culture. I am proud to sponsor this 3rd Festival in Geneva and hope that you will join us to support this important cultural event.
