Welcome to the 15th Annual Columbus Jewish Film Festival!
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Columbus Jewish Film Festival, 2019! We remain committed to presenting the finest in current, relevant and important Jewish films and programs. We are proud of the outstanding films for this, our 15th festival.
How do you define Jewish Cinema? The question is as baffling as determining exactly what is Jewish Art. There seems to be no one answer. Just as there is no one Jewish experience, there is no singular definition of a Jewish movie. Whether the film is a dramatic feature, documentary, narrative, comedy, or short, there is a commonality. The CJFF films reflect life through a Jewish lens.
Our films will challenge you and make you think. This year’s films explore current issues such as political conflict, sexual harassment, religious freedom

We look forward to seeing you at the movies!
