Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival
Under the auspices of The Gershman Y, the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (PJFF) seeks to entertain, educate, and engage the Philadelphia cultural community by presenting films and programs that illuminate, explore, and support Jewish values, culture, and history. Now embarking on its 33rd season, the critically acclaimed Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival is the second longest running series of its kind in the United States. The PJFF serves the Greater Philadelphia region by highlighting the diversity of the Jewish experience through independent narrative films, documentaries, and shorts from around the globe.
Exploring such important topics as contemporary Jewish life, Jewish heritage and identity, Jewish diaspora and assimilation, inter-faith marriage, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, terrorism, human rights, and post-Holocaust memories, the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival offers film enthusiasts the opportunity to see the best of worldwide Jewish Independent Cinema.
Philadelphia's vibrant film scene contributes to the cultural atmosphere of a city already known for its tremendous music, theater, and art offerings. The Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival is honored to serve the Philadelphia cultural community and invites you to be a part of the action!
