The main idea of the festival is to present both the contemporary and traditional culture of the Jewish people. It is the continuation of the cultural tradition started with the Jewish Culture Festival in Kraków in 1988.
The festival is a member of the Association of European Jewish Film Festivals, which was established during the World Conference of Jewish Film Festival Directors in Boston in 2004.
The festival issues annual awards for films on Jewish topics. Its Grand Prix is called "David's Camera" (Polish: Kamera Dawidova), sketched on the festival's logo. It is issued separately for categories of full-length films and of shorts.
