Young Friends of GPJFF


Young Friends of GPJFF aims to cultivate a unique community of Philadelphia film lovers dedicated to celebrating and sharing Jewish stories from around the world through cinema. By expressing what makes Jewish culture and heritage meaningful to our generation, we will influence the narrative that informs the way future generations will see and experience their Jewish identity and legacy.

Throughout the year, Young Friends will have many opportunities to see films that resonate with our generation. In addition, Young Friends will meet the world’s freshest, up-and-coming filmmakers and industry insiders. We’ll meet at bars, screening rooms, living rooms, and of course, GPJFF events!
