Each February the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival presents great cinema from all over the world with Jewish themes or universal stories with a Jewish lens.

We have decided not to offer a virtual series in May of 2024, as previously considered.

Our 29th annual film festival will be held in Feb 16 through March 2, 2025. We plan to show 20-30 films, to over 10,000 attendees, who travel from all over North America to be in Phoenix, Arizona during the winter.

Entries for this year's festival are open until Oct 11, 2024.

Please send an email to artdir@gpjff.org if you want to add a personal note to your submission or cannot use FilmFreeway.

Any film selected for the festival will have contract terms mutually determined.

    Thank you for including "To Meet Esther" in the film festival program. It is an honor for our team and me as the director to screen the film to the audience of the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival.

    We were so delighted and honored that our student film "Irit Bardugo's Bar Mitzvah" won first prize for best Israeli Student Film. Thank you to Tali and the team for your excellent communication and professionalism. We will definitely be submitting again next year!

    Thank you for selecting our documentary, “More Than a Roll With a Hole” for your festival. It was great working with you and your selection has really helped us raise the profile of the project and lent it kudos. We all look forward to working with you again in the future.
