Support the Festival

Celebrating twenty-one 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 enables us to bring dynamic speakers and filmmakers who engage our audience and exceptional films that explore the Jewish experience. The Holocaust education screening brings history to life for public school students and promotes tolerance and understanding.

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.

The well-being and safety of our community is our top priority during this difficult time. Given the recommendations and guidelines of the CDC and Rutgers University, our film festival this year will be completely online.

A virtual film festival gives you the opportunity to screen all the films in the festival from the comfort and safety of your home. Our highly anticipated Q+A sessions with film directors and guest speakers will also be accessible to you through the Zoom platform.
