Our Mission


Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival

39 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 (GPJFF) is to educate and engage diverse Philadelphia communities, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, by presenting world-class film premieres, repertory cinema, and associated programs that are 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.
