Seattle Jewish Film Festival

Founded in 1995, the Seattle Jewish Film Festival (SJFF) is an annual, 10-day, and year-round cinematic exploration and celebration of global Jewish and Israeli life, history, complexity, culture, and film for everyone. SJFF is the largest and most highly anticipated Jewish event in the Pacific Northwest and a mainstay in the Seattle arts calendar, attracting approximately 7,500 diverse patrons annually to the festival and garnering international acclaim as one of the largest and longest-running high-caliber Jewish film festivals in the US. Each year, SJFF showcases the best international, independent, and award-winning Jewish-themed and Israeli cinema, and enhances audience and community engagement with special social events and discussion forums with filmmakers and guest speakers. Seattle Weekly praised SJFF as the best ethnic film festival in our region. SJFF is a vital cornerstone of the Stroum Jewish Community Center’s Arts+Ideas season and programming. Central to the J’s community-building mission, SJFF brings people together to inspire learning and new perspectives by showcasing the virtuosity and diversity of Jewish cinema and talent. SJCC’s mission is to inspire connections to build community and ensure Jewish continuity. Together we create outstanding programs, partnerships, and spaces that welcome everyone to learn, grow, and celebrate Jewish life and culture. The 23rd annual Seattle Jewish Film Festival takes place March 10–18, with a new Eastside expansion April 14–15.
