The Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival celebrated its inaugural year by presenting a broad array of exceptional films from the United States, Israel and around the world including feature films, documentaries, comedies and short films that explore the Jewish experience, culture, history, identity and topics relevant to Jewish life.
Many of the films were U.S., regional, or Florida premieres, bringing the best of Jewish film to our community. For one week in March, the Cinemark Palace 20 in Boca Raton was the hub of Jewish film in Palm Beach County.
The stories that unfolded on our screens promise captured the imagination, shaped the way we see a certain aspect of our shared history or culture, and sometimes simply entertained and delighted us. Viewers experienced new stories from emerging and established filmmakers, and reflected on the Jewish experience through their lenses. Many screenings showcased guest artists, actors, filmmakers and scholars who provided a post-screening perspective and engaged in interactive audience discussions.
Our mission is to provide the newest, most stimulating and thought provoking films that encourage audiences to expand their awareness and understanding of the Jewish world and engage in dialogue to explore the many diverse perspectives portrayed by the films presented.
