AJC Seattle Jewish Film Festival: “The World Through a Vibrant Lens”

March 11-21, 2010

The annual AJC Seattle Jewish Film Festival (SJFF) is an 10-day international cinematic exploration and celebration of Jewish life, culture, identity and history. Jewish film festivals are one of the most popular expressions of Jewish culture today, providing unparalleled opportunities for moviegoers to plumb every aspect of the Jewish psyche and experience.

SJFF uses the magical medium of film to both entertain and educate the Jewish and general communities about complex issues facing Jewish people and world communities alike, while challenging conventional perspectives. SJFF also strives to build bridges of mutual understanding between diverse groups by creating forums for engaging in respectful dialogue about timely subjects and concerns. By viewing “The World Through a Vibrant Lens,” SJFF audiences also gain profound insight into the universal human experience.

Founded in 1995, SJFF has grown dramatically in size and reputation into the largest and most highly anticipated Jewish cultural and arts event in the Pacific Northwest. From humble beginnings in Seattle’s 100-seat Grand Illusion Theatre to the 800-seat Cinerama Theatre today, SJFF welcomes some 8,000 attendees from across the Greater Seattle area. The Seattle Weekly praises SJFF as the best ethnic film festival in our region, with a breadth and quality second only to the Seattle International Film Festival. Screenings are supplemented by guest speakers, providing a dynamic forum for dialogue with actors, filmmakers, academics and expert panelists from near and far. In recent years, SJFF offerings have included musical and comedy performances, curated exhibits and thematic educational opportunities and special events.

Moviegoers cast their ballots for Best Feature, Best Documentary and Best Short Film, with winners receiving the SJFF Audience Choice Award on Closing Night.
