Celebrating 27 Years

The annual JFilm Festival presents international Jewish-themed films that deepen audiences’ understanding of Jewish culture, tolerance, and our common humanity. The eleven-day festival is complemented by a variety of supplemental programming, including visiting filmmakers, guest speakers and collaborative events with other local organizations. Stay tuned for the JFilm Track at the Film Pittsburgh Fall Festival, November 11-22, 2020.

What's Next:

The 28th year of our JFilm Festival will be held from April 22nd through May 2nd, 2021 and we are now accepting submissions on FilmFreeway.

In the meantime, feel free to revisit our Re-Imagined Virtual JFilm Festival, where we shared one Jewish-themed short film and filmmaker interview each day of what would have been the JFilm Festival, April 23 - May 3. Most of the films, and all of the interviews, are still available to watch for free online, and can be found as posts on our JFilm Facebook page.
