Destination 22nd Seattle Jewish Film Festival: 9-day journey | amazing in-flight entertainment and travel rewards!

Fasten your seat belts and get ready for takeoff on Opening Night with the film “Harmonia” and return-home Closing Night with locally-made “Big Sonia."  For your in-flight entertainment, the festival also includes a highly anticipated special advance screening of “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” starring two-time Academy Award-nominated Jessica Chastain, among many other films that invite audiences on a journey through global Jewish and Israeli life and culture. Closing night will bring guests back home with the documentary “Big Sonia,” from Seattle-based award-winning filmmakers Leah Warshawski and Todd Soliday. 

The Stroum Jewish Community Center is thrilled to mark SJFF's 22nd year as one of the longest-running film festivals in the region and an important part of Seattle’s cultural mosaic, offers a diverse spectrum of films that welcomes everyone aboard.  Exploring a theme of “Arrivals," all selections will give audiences the opportunity to satisfy their wanderlust through international cinematic travel to France, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Israel, and beyond. 

Be transported, be transformed!
