Description

One of the largest and most respected Jewish film festivals in North America, the Washington Jewish Film Festival (WJFF) is an international exhibition of cinema that celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture and experience through the moving image. In addition to the annual festival, the WJFF presents an ongoing, year-round film series, in our home venue at the DCJCC. The WJFF annually serves over 18,000 people through 130+ screenings, nearly all of which are premieres.

Objective

The WJFF program employs the moving image to explore the breadth of the Jewish and Israeli Experience, in the process promoting awareness, appreciation and pride in the diversity of the Jewish people. WJFF programs are organized to foster consciousness of Jewish identity, history and culture while providing an open and inviting forum for engaged discussion and exploration of these themes.
