25th Annual St. Louis Jewish Film Festival
Dear Jewish Film Festival Supporters,
Thank you for joining us on the adventure of the first-ever virtual St. Louis Jewish Film Festival. When we started to plan the 25th Annual Festival, we could not have imagined the world in which we would find ourselves. We especially want to thank the Jewish Film Festival committee and staff for all they did to pivot from an in-person film festival to one where you all watched in the safety and comfort of your own home.
We have some exciting news. Did you miss any of the six free Film Festival discussions? Each of them added so much to the enjoyment and understanding of the films. All sponsors, and ticket purchasers who have not yet watched the discussions, will be able to access the discussions through the end of December by logging into your account at events.jccstl.com
If you enjoyed the thought-provoking feature film Incitement, you are invited to a FREE zoom discussion about the film. It will be hosted on Tuesday, December 1 at 6pm by our new J shilchah (Israel Engagement Specialist), Roni Lavi. Please click here for more details. To RSVP for this discussion and to receive the dedicated link, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, if you have not yet done so, please help us by rating each film. Just go to each film home page to cast your ballot. We look forward to the 26th Annual St. Louis Jewish Film Festival this coming June 2021!
St. Louis Jewish Film Festival
Travel the World Through Film!
The J’s St. Louis Jewish Film Festival showcases national and international cinema that explores universal issues through traditional Jewish values, opposing viewpoints and new perspectives. The Jewish Film Festival now offers year-round opportunities to experience Jewish films from around the world. In 2020 all films will be presented virtually!
The Festival’s complete lineup of features and documentaries will be available to view on-demand anytime from November 9-15. All films and programs will be purchased and shown via our viewing platform. Once you purchase a ticket or pass, you will be emailed information on how to unlock films for viewing during the week of the festival. Once a ticketholder begins watching a program, access to it remains available for 48 hours and must be completed by the end of the festival.
Live Zoom Q&As with filmmakers, documentary subjects and local speakers will accompany many of the programs, so it is recommended you view the film by that time. Q&As are free of charge.
Festival tech support is available! Don’t be nervous about watching films at home. We’re here to help. Call our hotline 314.442.3179. There will also be live technical support during the Festival week.
