For the past 23 years, the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF) has celebrated Jewish culture through film, bringing an exciting lineup of films to Arizona honoring Jewish traditions and heritage. From February 10-24, 2018, the 22nd Annual Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival will screen films showcasing the best of Jewish traditions, at three Valley locations: Harkins Shea 14, Scottsdale; Harkins Park West 14, Peoria and Harkins Tempe Marketplace 16, Tempe.
Currently the longest-running film festival in the Valley, the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival celebrates its 23rd year by presenting more great films that make our festival even bigger and better - almost 2,100 magical minutes of Jewish cinema from 10 different countries! Rejoice in this annual crowd-pleasing two-week annual event with 21 new films and five short films ranging from defiance and struggle to fun and adventure to laughter and love, with something for everyone and stories that engage both mind and heart. Without leaving your movie theater seat, travel from the baseball diamonds of South Korea to the chessboards of the former Soviet Union, from the courtrooms of South Africa to the mountaintops of Switzerland; from the back lots of HollyWood to the deserts of both Las Vegas and Israel!
The Arizona premiere of HEADING HOME: THE TALE OF TEAM ISRAEL, featuring former and current Jewish Major League Baseball players who played for Israel in the World Baseball Classic, coincides with the start of Cactus League Spring Training and features a few familiar ballplayer faces that will grace both big screens and the baseball diamonds across the Valley.
