5 May – Oy Vey Jewish Film Festival!

This film festival is organized by the film lovers of Oy Vey. Oy Vey is building a radically inclusive, dynamic and contemporary Jewish movement where Jewish life and joy are central and where differences are celebrated. In doing so, we want to contribute to the revival of Jewish culture in the Netherlands.

📽️ The Oy Vey team has been busily planning the very first Oy Vey Film Festival! It’s coming up 2-5 May.

🌍 The theme: Jewish Diaspora.

📌 Program online at Kriterion

Finally a real Jewish film festival in Mokum again! From May 2-5, 2024, a selection of thoughtful Jewish films will be screened at Kriterion.

In four days and more than fourteen films, we will take you on a journey through the Jewish world. Our theme Boundless: Stories from the Diaspora, focuses on the diasporic nature of Jewish culture and offers a glimpse into contemporary, living Jewishness. We explore themes that mark the life cycle, joy and sorrow, life as a cultural and religious minority, and the impact of persecution. We also reflect on the meaning and importance of remembrance in contemporary times with a special program on May 4 and 5. This will include a special Oy Vey memorial to mark the anniversary of the end of World War II.

Dutch premier screenings!

Special: Several screenings will be Dutch premieres. With post-screening discussions with striking speakers, performances by poets, music and the very best Jewish films, the very first edition of Oy Vey Film promises to be a highlight of the year. In short: you definitely don’t want to miss this!
