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.
Our 24th outing begins at the JCC on May 10, 2018 with Keep the Change, a remarkable love story unlike any you've ever seen, which will be followed by a visit, live on stage, with the film's stars. The Festival continues at the Midtown Cinema through May 17th. Mark your calendars for another memorable season of great films and special events – you’re not going to want to miss it!
