Jewish Cultural Film Festival

Dear festival fans and supporters,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and after consulting with multiple directors of other Jewish film festivals (as well as event services staff at Gonzaga University, our usual host), we have decided that the 2021 Spokane Jewish Cultural Film Festival must be virtual. While we will absolutely miss the schmoozing, noshing, and programming opportunities that an in-person festival provides, we are excited about some of the “silver linings” a virtual festival could entail, including:

  • More films!

  • More filmmaker introductions and post-film Q&As than ever before!

  • An even larger audience for our festival!

In the coming weeks, we will update you on specifics as they become more certain. For the moment, we thank you for making our festival part of your cultural life in the Inland Northwest, and we look forward to presenting yet another meaningful and enjoyable cinematic event for cinephiles of all creeds and kinds!
