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.

In 2018, the TCJFF entered into a partnership with the Twin Cities Film Fest, providing the Festival the opportunity to access more films and to draw more Jewish filmmakers and artists to our community to connect with local audiences.

Potential accommodations for visiting filmmakers or resource people.

Films must have Jewish/Israeli connections, Jewish/Israeli content preferred but legitimate connections are required.

Preferential treatment to films not yet released to general public, VOD, or streaming.

Attention is paid to artistic qualities: storytelling, cinematography, merit.

Both short and full length films accepted.
