The National Center for Jewish Film's annual film festivalpresents a vibrant program of new independent films and classic cinematic treasures from around the world. Please visit www.jewishfilm.org for more information. NCJF’s festival is an outgrowth of its work as a unique, independent nonprofit motion picture archive, distributor, resource center and exhibitor. Since 1976, NCJF has rescued, restored and exhibited films that document the diversity and vibrancy of Jewish life. The Center’s archive collection of 15,000 reels of film with Jewish content is the world’s largest outside of Israel. NCJF has restored more than 100 endangered “orphan” films. A world leader in the collection and exhibition of Jewish film and culture, NCJF provides programming consultation to 7,000 people each year. The Center supports contemporary independent filmmakers by distributing their new productions and overseeing new films produced under its aegis.
Jewishfilm.2014 is directed and curated by NCJF's co-directors Lisa Rivo & Sharon Pucker Rivo.
