Washington Jewish Film Festival Description

Washington Jewish Film Festival - Film Festival in Washington, DC.

For eleven days in January, film buffs and Jewish filmmakers unite at the Washington Jewish Film Festival in Washington, DC. Each year, the Washington Jewish Film Festival takes place at multiple venues in DC including the JCC of Greater Washington and the Avalon Theatre.

Since 1990, the Washington Jewish Film Festival has screened feature films, documentaries, and shorts that inspire dialogue about various issues that capture elements of the Jewish experience. Films showcased at past festivals include Thierry Binistri’s A Bottle in the Gaza Sea, Sophie Lellouche’s Paris Manhattan, and Peter Sillen’s I Am Secretly an Important Man.

At the Centerpiece Evening, cast and crew from the screened film share their stories and answer questions about the film. And at the Two Jews Walk Into a Bar event, movie lovers enjoy a series of shorts and a bar crawl through popular DC watering holes like Local 16, Tropicalia, and Bistro La Bonne.

Tickets to the Washington Jewish Film Festival screenings cost about $11 each. Tickets to the Centerpiece Evening cost around $20 per person. Opening and Closing Night tickets to the Washington Jewish Film Festival cost about $25 each, and tickets to the Two Jews Walk Into a Bar event cost around $30. For access to all the screenings and events at the Washington Jewish Film Festival, diehard film fans opt for the Festival Pass at around $75 per person or about $30 for guests 30 and under. After the screenings, meet up with fellow movie lovers at the bars and cafés nearby in Dupont Circle.
