Jewish Film Festival 2021 at Lincoln Center is Virtual

The 30th New York Jewish Film Festival features documentaries, dramas and romcoms about the Jewish experience around the world, including about inter-racial friendship, food, immigration, hope, grief and resilience.

As always, you do not have to be Jewish to enjoy international films with such universal themes, and in 2021 the entire schedule is available virtually, with each film online for viewing for 72 hours.

The 2021 New York Jewish Film Festival also features FREE with Q&As and free live talks throughout the celebrated annual event, including a virtual workshop with Peabody Award–winning filmmaker Judith Helfand, five live talks with filmmakers, and 12 pre-recorded Q&As included with your ticket rentals.

Individual films are $12 and can be watched anytime during your 72-hour rental period.  The talks are free with registration.

There are brief trailers for each film on the Jewish Film Festival website.
