The Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival is celebrating our 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 are 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 will be the hub of Jewish film in Palm Beach County.
The stories that will unfold on our screens promise to capture the imagination, shape the way we see a certain aspect of our shared history or culture, and sometimes simply entertain and delight us. Experience new stories from emerging and established filmmakers, and reflect on the Jewish experience through their lenses. Many screenings will showcase guest artists, actors, filmmakers and scholars who will provide a post-screening perspective and engage 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.
