Family films to catch at the Jewish Film Festival

The Jewish Film Festival  is on at locations across the country from now until November 17th and its a great opportunity for the whole family to catch two great films.

Go to the Festival website www.ukjewishfilm.org and look for The Zigzag Kid and Igor and the Cranes Journey. The Zigzag Kid, a fast-paced thriller, is a film from the Netherlands, directed by Vincent Bal and starring Isabella Rosselini. It was one of the films selected for this year’s Generation section of the Berlinale (Generation is the programme of films for children).  Igor and the Cranes Journey, a Polish/Russian/Israeli co-production was screened at both the Chicago and Cinekid children’s film festivals. There are several screenings across the country: The Zigzag Kid is showing  in London, Glasgow, Liverpool and Leeds and Igor and the Cranes Journey in London ( on November 3rd only – so hurry!)and Leeds.

This is a rare chance for the whole family ( 10+ recommended) to see two films of a very different and engaging kind!
