The year 2017 marks the 26th edition of the New York Jewish Film Festival. We are delighted by continuing our partnership between the Jewish Museum and the Film Society of Lincoln Center to bring you the finest narrative and documentary films from around the world that explore the diversity of Jewish experience.
This year’s festival features a wide-ranging and exciting lineup of films and shorts from the iconic to the iconoclastic. Including global, U.S., and New York premieres, a tribute to actress and cabaret artist Valeska Gert, a 50th anniversary screening of Mel Brooks’s The Producers, and a related poster exhibition honoring the life and work of Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, this year’s NYJFF will entertain film lovers from all backgrounds.
Most showings at Walter Reade Theater.
