The main idea of the festival is to present both the contemporary and traditional culture of the Jewish people.[4] It is the continuation of the cultural tradition started with the Jewish Culture Festival in Kraków in 1988.[5]

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.[6]

AwardsEdit

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.
