About the New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
Founded in 2000 by Caren and Herbert Ford and now in its 17th year, the New Jersey Jewish Film Festival (NJJFF) has become one of the premier Jewish cultural events in the state. We screen award-winning premieres and first run Israeli, American, and international films of Jewish interest, followed by thought provoking post-screening discussions. In addition to our springtime festival, we offer film programs throughout the year, such as the Reel Film Series class and Extra! screenings and receptions.
New Jersey Jewish Film Festival (NJJFF) fosters the growth of Jewish culture, identity and community in New Jersey by presenting a wide range of exceptional films of Jewish interest. NJJFF offers audiences direct exposure to directors, performers, writers, reviewers, and scholars.
New Jersey Jewish Film Festival strives to offer our region a rich tapestry of Jewish film programming. Our springtime festival features high-quality, award-winning films. We invite film creatives and other speakers of interest and renown to lead our post-screening discussions.
