10th Anniversary Film Festival
We are proud to announce the 10th anniversary of The JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival!
Whether viewed virtually or in-person, our mission is to showcase culturally diverse, Jewishly inspired films that will entertain, educate, and inspire audiences of all generations. Our carefully curated films honor Jewish filmmakers, writers, and actors—and those committed to repairing the world through brave, artistic expression. Many films are Chicago Premieres and will include post-film Q&As with filmmakers, actors and subject matter experts.
The festival has entertained more than 60,000 film attendees/viewers since its inception. This year we will continue with our hybrid model and show 10 films online and in-person over three weekends. We thank you for being part of our 10th anniversary year!
And stay tuned for film we will be showing as part of our Violins of Hope project between April and September 2023. These films will represent resilience, resistance, and hope! Films will be shown at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
