About the Sacramento Jewish Film Festival

The Sacramento Jewish Film Festival has presented the best films related to Jews and Judaism since 1997.  This year we will again be presenting a virtual festival.  However, depending on COVID 19 conditions, we hope to show a limited number of films at local venues as well.  This year’s festival includes 33 feature films, 14 free short films, and a number of live and recorded events.

Our festival promises to amuse, entertain, inspire, educate, and provide opportunities to share this experience together. We will offer a wide variety of films and related experiences: comedies,  dramas, documentaries, live Zoom chats with filmmakers, and community forums where we can exchange thoughts and feelings about the films we saw! We will be presenting films from all over the world, including Israel, Canada, Germany, the UK, France, Sweden, Italy, Bulgaria, the Ukraine, Portugal, Switzerland, the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Qatar, and the USA.

Ticket sales cover less than half of the cost of our film festival. Please support Jewish films in Sacramento by becoming a sponsor. The Jewish Federation is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations may be tax-deductible, pursuant to federal and state law and regulations.

The Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region is a philanthropic organization that provides educational, cultural, and social services programs to the Jewish community locally and around the world. The Federation movement protects and enhances the well-being of Jews worldwide through the values of “tikkun olam” (repairing the world) and “tzedakah” (charity and social justice).

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) educates about and advocates on behalf of issues of vital importance to the Jewish community.
