25th Silver Screen Anniversary
Celebrating a Quarter Century of EdJEWtainment
For 25 years, you have gathered and strengthened our community by attending the Seattle Jewish Film Festival, nurturing it from a 100-seat weekend upstart in 1995 to today's 13-day, five-venue, three-city, regional attraction.
Like silver, SJFF is a precious gem, an alloy of education and entertainment that shines bright for everyone. Only with your support can we make this sterling vision a reality. Your investment will ensure another exquisite, invigorating festival accessible to all. With your help, SJFF can be an experience that links generations and nurtures a sense of emotional connection, shared values, and belonging on and off the silver screen.
This year, SJFF celebrates a major milestone: its 25th Silver Screen Anniversary. In that quarter century:
- SJFF has screened over 600 films depicting the global Jewish and Israeli experience
- SJFF has impacted more than 100,000 attendees; and
- Since 2012 SJFF ignited the growth of the Stroum Jewish Community Center as an arts and culture hub where SJFF and SJCC Arts + Ideas programs showcase the work of 100 Jewish and Israeli artists each season, and engage over 10,000 people annually, welcoming nearly 2,000 new patrons each year!
We are busy planning our biggest and best festival yet, featuring an opening night old-Hollywood silver soirée, world premieres, honoring this year's REEL and REAL Difference Award recipients, and a centerpiece screening at tTe Paramount Theatre in partnership with STG Silent Movie Mondays, featuring a live original score composed and performed by world-renowned klezmer violinist Alicia Svigals and an ensemble.
Please join us by supporting this milestone year. You’ll strengthen our regional Jewish community and ensure the film festival remains a welcoming and inspiring event for all. Recognition deadline is January 30th.
