The Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival (LAJFF) highlights and celebrates the diversity of the Jewish experience through film. With its focus on Jewish identity, LAJFF informs and inspires its audience.
By featuring films that deal with Jewish culture, history, traditions, challenges and characters, LAJFF deepens Jewish values, promotes ideas of tolerance and encourages a new dialogue within the greater Los Angeles Community.
In our fourth year, LAJFF will introduce an international line-up of new films including comedies, dramas, documentaries, shorts and animated films. Many of the programs are co-produced with community partners and will be enhanced by exciting panel discussions with filmmakers, actors and special guests.
