2021 Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival
25th ANNUAL GREATER PHOENIX JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS FEBRUARY 14 – March 3, 2021 Every Ticket is a Reserved Seat as 2021 Line Up Goes Virtual for the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival’s Silver Anniversary Celebration
For a quarter of a century, 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. Our 25th Anniversary will not be any different, except this year it will include three extra days of screenings and take place in the comfort of one’s own home! From February 14 through March 3, 2021, the 25th Annual Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival will screen films showcasing the best of Jewish life, history and heritage. This year, due to ongoing healthy and safety concerns, the film festival, normally held in three cities across the Valley, will be held entirely online.
Currently the longest-running film festival in the Valley, the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival celebrates its 25th year by presenting more great films that make our festival even bigger and better – hours upon hours of Jewish cinema from dozens of different countries! Rejoice in this annual crowd-pleasing annual event with over 30 feature-length and 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. Via just about any device, computer or Smart TV, the audience can travel from the beaches and shuks of Israel to the sound stages of Hollywood, from the snowy forests of Norway to the announcers’ booth at Yankee Stadium; from an operating room in modern-day Italy to the cobblestone back alleys of wartime France.
Using innovative technologies, the virtual festival will allow participants to easily build a flexible customized schedule to see every film on the schedule. Post-film interviews with filmmakers and experts on the films’ subjects will be held seamlessly after many screenings.
As a show of gratitude towards the Valley community’s support of the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival, a free screening of the documentary, SHARED LEGACIES, will be shown on Saturday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. to coincide with Black History Month. The documentary explores crucial historical lessons of African-American and Jewish cooperation while fighting blatant bias and racism.
