About

Origins-of-ViolenceThe Columbus Jewish Film Festival is committed to presenting cutting-edge international films and ancillary programming that reflect a myriad of Jewish experiences. Festival goals include engaging Jewish individuals and groups in the production of the Festival; building and inspiring new audiences; facilitating dialogue among diverse communities; promoting Tikkun Olam and social justice; and enriching Jewish culture and the Columbus arts community. Film screenings, educational programs, social events, celebrations and community collaborations are tools used to accomplish these goals.

Our Mission

The Columbus Jewish Film Festival is committed to bringing Central Ohio audiences a sampling of the best in contemporary independent and international Jewish films. The Festival promotes a Jewish legacy that values art and embraces universal themes, moral questions and ethical concerns. By pushing the boundaries of what is considered Jewish and taking the Festival outside of the walls of Jewish institutions, the Festival opens a window that invites sharing in the richness of the Jewish heritage and experience.
