#LetsGetReel

The Jewish Film Festival of Dallas provides a window to the Jewish experience and allows us to explore contemporary and historical themes in many different global settings. Some films will make you laugh and others will make you cry…all will provide you with a life lesson.
In our 25th festival, we are delighted to present compelling films throughout the year. After many of the films we will have a Talk Back with an expert on the subject matter at hand to enhance the viewing and learning experience for our audience and to strengthen our sense of community.

Save the date for our 2022-23 Jewish Film Festival of Dallas Opening Day on Wednesday, September 7th, 2022. Watch here for film information and screening dates.
