Film Festival

The Barshop JCC Jewish Film Festival promotes Jewish values and diversity through the medium of film, striving to entertain, educate,
and raise community awareness of Jewish identity, history, and culture. 
The Festival was conceived in 2001 by Mel Pomerantz, whose persistent efforts brought it to life. 

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the 2019-20 Jewish Film Festival series. For more information, contact Aliyah Kuchinsky at (210) 302-6827.

Due to Covid-19 we will be postponing out June Mini-Fest to September 13th.

Details to be announced soon. We will see you at the movies!
