Support the Festival
Celebrating twenty-three years of Jewish history, culture, and identity, the Rutgers Jewish Film Festival features award-winning international dramas and documentaries, including highly acclaimed Israeli films. The Festival brings our diverse community together and offers new perspectives on Israeli society, Jews around the world, the Holocaust, and Jewish identity.
Your support of the Rutgers Jewish Film Festival enables us to offer exceptional films that explore the Jewish experience as well as thought-provoking discussions with filmmakers and other dynamic speakers. The generosity of our donors enables us to make a meaningful impact in the community by fostering engagement with Jewish identity, culture, and history.
Ticket revenue accounts for only a portion of the Festival's budget.
We rely on our sponsors to bridge the difference and help us create an outstanding film festival.
