The Boston Jewish Film Festival celebrates the richness of the Jewish experience through film and media. Throughout the year, the Festival engages and inspires the community to explore the full spectrum of Jewish life, values and culture.
Founded by filmmaker Michal Goldman in 1989, The Boston Jewish Film Festival has grown from 10 screenings to more than 50 at our Boston and Brookline venues – the Museum of Fine Arts and the Coolidge Corner Theatre – and additional screenings throughout the Greater Boston area. In the past 25 years the Festival has presented over 1,000 films – many of them US or Massachusetts premieres – and welcomed more than 250,000 audience members.
Many of the films we have shown have gone on to be nominated for or win Academy Awards, including The Pianist (winner, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, 2002), Nowhere in Africa (winner, Best Foreign Film, 2002), and The Personals (winner, Best Short-Subject Documentary, 1998). We bring visiting artists from around the world to introduce their films, answer audience questions, and participate in panel discussions. We also offer many live events, from pre-screening music, to new scores to accompany silent films, to full-fledged post-screening concerts and dance performances.
