A Special Thanks to our Amazing Sponsors

Festival Sponsors are a precious part of the Seattle Jewish Film Festival. They help underwrite the considerable costs of mounting a first-class international community arts and culture event, and keep ticket pricing low. They enhance audience and guest experiences, while gaining valuable marketing exposure on-screen, in print, through social media to our 7,000 well-heeled patrons. We are blessed with vital support from family and granting foundations, media and catering/restaurant sponsors, and community nonprofits. Thank you, thank you, thank you for building a vibrant festival and ensuring an aware and engaged community.
