  1. Hi,
    As a paris France baed filmmaker, I have a new feature length documentay l just completed. My previous fiction film Local Call, “Ne Quittez pas”with a jewish them was selected in many Jewish film festival in the US. (among them San Francisco JFF, Portland, Stanford, and many others…) Is it possible I submit my new film mentioned above to a central selection for Jewish festival in the US instead of trying all of them separately?
    Many thanks in advance for your answer

      That is a great question. Unfortunately I don’t know of any service that would allow you to do that. good luck

  2. 30th Buffalo International Jewish Film Festival 2015 will be May 16-21 at Amherst Dipson Theatre, and from May 31-June 7 at JCC Benderson Building in Getzville. 18 films.

    Hi, why does the list end in October (or have I missed the option to go to next pages)? There ARE many Jewish festival in November &December…

    • jewishfilmfests says:

      Because I didn’t have time to add more yet. (This site is maintained by one person in my spare time). Last year there were 151 festivals. I expect this year there will be more or less the same amount. Eventually added here.
