A festival of Jewish film & storytelling

For thousands of years, Jewish communities have shared wisdom, values, and experiences. In written word, visual arts, and today in film and television – storytelling has been among the most meaningful characteristics of our community and strength.

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.
