Designed to build bridges, entertain, and create dialog, the Festival offers a universal medium through which Jewish history, traditions, political viewpoints, the arts, and personal relationships can all be viewed with the goal of experiencing life from another angle.
We plan to host a hybrid 2023 TCJFF that includes both in-person and virtual screenings. Details will be communicated closer to the event.
