Boston Jewish Film 360
This program is home to our year-round film screenings including special sneak previews and curated series. Boston Jewish Film 360 extends the spirit of our November Festival through the entire year. If there’s a new Jewish-themed film opening in the Boston area, we want you to know about it! Often, we’ll present a special advance screening, sometimes with a visiting filmmaker or actor. Other times, we’re able to offer members free tickets to a word-of-mouth screening at a local theater. These screenings are your chance to see the film before anyone else does.

Boston Jewish Film Studio
At Boston Jewish Film, we believe that stories can change lives. With Boston Jewish FilmStudio, our youth outreach program, we bring our films, teachers, and filmmakers to local schools and community centers. Through screenings, discussions, and hands-on filmmaking courses, our students Go Beyond the Screen. They discover other cultures, learn to read the language of film, and master the scripting, camera, and editing skills that enable them to tell their own stories on screen. Click here to learn more.
The spring and fall galas events are your opportunity to join us for an elegant dinner and a unique film experience. Check out all our Special Events here.
