29th New York Jewish Film Festival

The 29th New York Jewish Film Festival is at Film at Lincoln Center from January 15-28, 2020.

Schedule and tickets from $15 at

There are Israeli, French, Italian, and Mexican films this year.

The Festival may be even more relevant if you are not Jewish. There are many Jewish communities in both Latin Europe and Latin America. We both experienced historical slavery and we both experience being treated as outsiders.

Sadly, the recent anti-Semitism that we’ve experienced in New York City is coming from our own Black and Latin kids. Take your kids to the New York Jewish Film Festival and discover our common humanity.
