26th Annual Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival

Join us October 15-29, 2023

The Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival celebrates the quality, diversity, and innovation of Jewish film making from around the world. Narrative or documentary, new or old, the Film Festival finds the highest quality films that speak to the Jewish experience, tell uniquely Jewish stories, or come from the finest Jewish filmmakers across the globe.

All in-person screenings will take place October 15-19 at Marcus North Shore Cinema.

Once each film opens for streaming on Eventive, they will be available through the end of the festival on Sunday, October 29 at 11:59 PM

The Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival is an important component of Tapestry: Arts & Ideas from the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center and is made possible by Marcus Theatre Department of the Marcus Corporation, the Shel and Danni Gendelman Endowment Fund, and the Sylvia and Robert Seinfeld Jewish Film Festival Endowment Fund.
