UK Jewish Film Festival 2023

We're pleased to be taking part in the UK Jewish Film Festival from 9th - 22nd November in cinemas across the UK. 

Our Bristol cinema will be hosting two screenings which are available to book via the Jewish Film Festival website here:

The two films we will be screening are below:


The Shadow of the Day (L'ombra del giorno)
Director: Giuseppe Piccioni
Italy, 2022, 128 mins, Italian with English subtitles.
Genre: Drama

Ascoli Piceno, 1938. Like the majority of his fellow Italians, decorated war veteran and restaurant manager Lucianois a staunch supporter of the country's fascist regime. Shortly after the Italian racial laws are introduced, Anna, a young beautiful woman, turns up at the restaurant, desperately looking for work. When Anna's closely kept secrets are finally revealed, Luciano, who has fallen in love with her, has to reconsider his ideological beliefs and decide where his loyalties lie. This captivating melodrama, produced by and starring Riccardo Scamarcio (Where Life Begins), perfectly captures the oppression and fear created by Mussolini's brutal rule.

Warning: Film contains scenes of a sexual nature

The Shadow of the Day (L'ombra del giorno) will screen on Wednesday 15th November, 8pm.


Director: Erez Tadmor
Israel, 2022, 98 mins, Hebrew with English subtitles.
Genre: Comedy

On the face of it, young yeshiva butcher Moti and his little sister's best friend Nehami are the perfect match –they share the same values, have known each other for years, and most importantly, they are in love. There is just one little problem: Moti (Amit Rahav, Unorthodox) is Ashkenazi and Nehami –Sephardi, and in the ultra-Orthodox city in which they live, such a shidduch is strictly prohibited. Going against the wishes of his meddling parents and nosy matchmaker, Moti comes up with a genius if risky plan to marry

Inspired by classic Bourekas comedies, Erez Tadmor's (A Matter of Size, The Art
of Waiting) new film is a sharp, hilarious critique of the business of love and marriage in the Haredi community.

Matchmaking will screen on Wednesday 22nd November, 8pm

To book, visit   Tickets are not available at the cinema box office for these two titles.
