Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival

Our Mission

The Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival (LAJFF) builds community awareness, appreciation and pride in the diversity of the Jewish people through a cinematic experience.

The mission of LAJFF is to preserve and celebrate the rich Jewish heritage; to cultivate Jewish values and the quality of Jewish life in the LA community (not only for the affiliated but unaffiliated); and to create and maintain a sense of community by providing important and exciting programming for individuals, families and organizations.

Our Goals

• To present films that preserve and celebrate the rich tapestry of Jewish heritage.
• To build a cohesive community by offering films that create awareness of important societal issues and current events.
• To introduce films that reflect the profound heritage that Jewish people have brought to the world.
• To procure and present thought-provoking films that will engage and build bridges between the Jewish community and the broader multi-ethnic fabric of Los Angeles.
• To offer unique, groundbreaking films that are not offered in any other venue in Los Angeles, accompanied by talk-backs and discussions with filmmakers, scholars and celebrities.
• To create programming that will educate its audience and promote the bright future of Jewish creativity.
