The New York Jewish Film Festival (NYJFF) is an annual festival in New York City that features a wide array of international films exploring themes related to the Jewish experience. The Jewish Museum and The Film Society of Lincoln Center work in partnership to present the NYJFF every January, with discussions by directors, actors, and film experts, taking place after screenings. Since its creation in 1992, the festival has more than doubled in size and scope!
The festival celebrates the Jewish experience and explores Jewish identity by seeking to broaden perceptions of the Jewish experience from a multitude of perspectives and nationalities. It presents an opportunity to discover new and challenging films that are often otherwise hard to find.
