The New Jersey Jewish Film Festival (NJJFF) strives to offer our region a rich tapestry of Jewish film programming. Our springtime festival features high-quality, award-winning films. We invite film creatives and other speakers of interest and renown to lead our post-screening discussions. The JCC MetroWest offers year-round film programming for all ages, in addition to the annual film festival.

Films considered for the New Jersey Jewish Film Festival must engage with Jewish religious or cultural themes, ideas, or content. Having a Jewish protagonist or a Jewish filmmaker, alone, will not be sufficient if the film does not engage meaningfully with Jewish identity, culture, etc.

    We were so glad that two of our graduate films were accepted this year. Communication with Stuart was easy and efficient. We will definitely submit again next year.

    What a wonderful festival - thank you! Great organization, friendly and very helpful. A boon to filmmakers. We are so happy you chose "Out of Exile - The Photography of Fred Stein" for the festival. Peter
