Twenty-five years ago, the all-volunteer Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival was formed with the mission to present international films with Jewish themes to the Greater Phoenix area. In 2021, the Festival will be held virtually in the comfort and safety of your own homes – reserved seats guaranteed! The Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival continues to help increase the sense of community among Jews in the Valley and raise awareness of the rich variety of Jewish culture to all filmgoers. In addition to the 2021 virtual festival, Feb. 14-28, complimentary films are currently offered to Senior communities, as well as to traditional filmgoers. Presenting virtual special reduced-rate and complimentary screenings throughout the year is one of the Festival’s aims.
