Tickets are on sale now for the 28th Annual Denver Jewish Film Festival which runs from March 9-17, 2024, at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center at the JCC. The festival features 20 entertaining and educational films, including documentaries, narratives and shorts, and highlights work by Jewish or Israeli filmmakers or actors and themes. The Denver Jewish Film Festival includes a curated selection of thought-provoking stories, heartfelt drama, and inspiring documentaries that bring to life the unique perspectives of Jewish and Israeli filmmakers.

“Our goal with the Denver Jewish Film Festival is to create community around live screenings of the best and brightest cinematic moments from newly released Jewish and Israeli directors and filmmakers,” said Stephanie Herm, chief operating officer of the JCC Denver and Mizel Arts and Culture Center. “The festival is not only for those who are Jewish, but anyone looking to experience artistic connection. This year’s festival includes a wide variety of films that cover a multitude of topics, and we hope the festival brings people together to support the Jewish community. To enhance the festival and the experience we’re offering Q&As after some films and even a Challah-making session.”
