Our Mission

 

Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival

38 Years and Going!

As one of the longest-running Jewish film festivals in the country and Philadelphia’s first film festival, the mission of the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival is to educate and engage diverse Philadelphia communities, Jewish and non-Jewish alike by presenting the best Jewish cinema from around the world and other cultural programs inspired by Jewish history, heritage, and values.

Our vision is to create shared experiences and connections through film and cultural programs inspired by Jewish legacy and values.
