A classic Jewish joke is told simultaneously by Graham Norton, Boy George, Brian Ferry, Davina McCall, Vanessa Feltz and thirty other Jewish and non-Jewish stars in a short film by actress Tracy-Ann Oberman and filmmaker Harvey B Brown to launch this year's UK Jewish Film Festival (UKJFF).

Now in its fourteenth year, the UKJFF is the foremost Jewish film event in Europe and is one of the leading specialist festivals in the country. It has a reputation for giving first showings to both major new movies, as well as independent documentaries and shorts.

This year's festival - held at cinemas across central and north London, from 4-21st November 2010 - comprises 66 films from countries including the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, China, the UK and the US. It includes 35 UK Premieres and two special previews of films to be released in 2011, as well as workshops for emerging film makers, panel discussions and first showings for the winners of the Pears Foundation Short Film Fund at the UKJFF.

To be screened in cinemas countrywide, the short film with contributions from over thirty Jewish and non-Jewish celebrities, sees Mrs Cohen trying to save money on the personal ad announcing her husband's death in the Jewish Chronicle, (the Festival's media sponsor).

The short film also launches the UKJFF's first ever comedy strand, Comedy Clash, which asks whether comedy can or should be expected to make a difference in tackling racism and prejudice. It will include special live comedy events and discussions with contributions from Josh Howie, Sky Movies's own "Movie Geek", David Baddiel and leading Muslim comedian, Shazia Mirza.
