Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival

Virtual Film Series:
June 28th - July 30th, 2020

This summer, for the first time ever, the Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival is going virtual!!  Rather than an indefinite postponement of our 2020 Festival due to the uncertainties around the pandemic, we are making our superb selection of films available for you, at home, over the course of five weeks this summer, from June 28th-July 30th.


The Festival series is free of charge. All you have to do to participate is register at our website (www.hbgjff.com, where you will find our schedule, trailers, and a wealth of other information), and you will receive links to each of the films, and invitations to gather on Zoom to talk about the pictures and enjoy some great Guest Speaker events.  


The circumstances aren’t ideal, but the films shouldn’t be missed, and we look forward to sharing them with you this summer.  See you (virtually) at the movies!



The 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.
