A Note from the Columbia Jewish Film Festival Chairs

Oct 23, 2015 by Nickelodeon on The Nickelodeon Blog

Dear Friends of the Columbia Jewish Film Festival,

This year, the Columbia Jewish Film Festival will celebrate its 15th year of showcasing Jewish movies. We are making some exciting changes, including moving the festival to November. This move allows us to have a closer partnership with The Nickelodeon, but more importantly it enables us to spread out the movies over a three-week period, making it easier to see all of the films.

Also new this year, we are inviting high school students to compete in a short film competition. Winning entries will be showcased at The Nickelodeon. The theme, “Freedom, at what cost?”, provides a framework for young filmmakers to explore while promoting dialogue and creativity, and addressing issues that are in the forefront of today’s headlines.

As always, the goal of the Columbia Jewish Film Festival is to provide meaningful, thought-provoking theatrical content with Jewish themes while creating an enjoyable and exciting experience for all moviegoers. Each year, the festival committee screens dozens of films so that we may bring you the best films available. From the humorous to the serious, the historical to the fictional, the Columbia Jewish Film Festival provides a wide range of films to suit all tastes. We select films that offer opportunities for insight and understanding, celebrate our diversity, and challenge us to explore our similarities.
