ReelAbilities Boston

ReelAbilities is an annual spring film festival that strives for inclusion of all people and is dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with different abilities.

During the 2017 Festival, we screened the Academy Award Nominated film Life, Animated, Asperger’s Are Us, True Smile, Notes on Blindness, My Hero Brother, and Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing.  

Fall Gala

The fall Gala event is our pre-Festival kick-off and your opportunity to join us for an elegant dinner and a unique film experience.

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 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.

Co-presentations

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.
