Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival

Mission

The newly renamed Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival has been an integral part of the Harrisburg Jewish community since its founding in 1995. Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of the Greater Harrisburg area by presenting films that reflect contemporary and historical Jewish and Israeli experiences.  The Film Festival aims to encourage Jewish and Israeli artistic expression; to foster dialogue, debate and education; and to nurture creativity in the arts through films that represent a broad spectrum of thought and opinion.

Thank you, one and all, who helped to make our 25th season the best yet, with more than 1800 guests enjoying our films and Silver Anniversary celebrations. We were happy to see so many of our loyal supporters back for another season, and thrilled to welcome many new faces to our Festival family. Join our mailing list and watch this space for details of the 2020 Festival (June 4-11) as it develops; meanwhile, support Midtown Cinema, home of the Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival!
