Pre-release and Word-of-Mouth Screenings
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 our 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.
The Boston Jewish Film Festival is proud to work with other film festivals throughout the year to bring quality films to the Boston area. Some of our recent and ongoing partners include the Boston French Film Festival, the Boston LGBT Film Festival, the Independent Film Festival of Boston, the National Center for Jewish Film, the Jewish Arts Collaborative, the Roxbury International Film Festival, and many more.
