The National Center for Jewish Film’s Annual Film Festival

Tickets now on sale!

All screening in person at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, MA

Join us for a vibrant program of new film premieres and rare archive treasures best experienced on the big screen! All screenings will be in person.

Highlights include new films from Israel, Germany, Australia and Italy, with visiting creatives and scholars.

We open with a Mother’s Day celebration: The New England premiere of our 35mm restoration of Mothers of Today, a 1939 Yiddish feature starring Esther Field the “Yiddishe Mama” of 1930s radio.

Since 1976, The National Center for Jewish Film (NCJF) has rescued, restored, and exhibited films that document the diversity of Jewish life.
