Long Beach Jewish Film Festival 2020

THE BEST IN JEWISH-THEMED FILMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

ALL ABOUT THE FILM FESTIVAL

The Long Beach Jewish Film Festival provides a window to the Jewish experience and allows us to explore contemporary and historical themes in many different global settings. Some films will make you laugh and others will make you cry…all will provide you with a life lesson. In our annual festival, we are delighted to present five compelling films in November. We will also be having special virtual events with an expert on the subject matter at hand to enhance the viewing and learning experience for our audience and to strengthen our sense of community.
