Nashville Jewish Film Festival
15 films that showcase contemporary Jewish life in the US, in Israel and throughout the world.
The NJFF aims to create a forum for the wider Nashville community to understand the complexity of issues surrounding Jewish life in contemporary society. The films chosen each year are meant to demonstrate the breadth and depth of the Jewish cultural, religious, historical, and social conditions of the modern era. Along with special guests, panels, and Opening and Closing Night celebrations, the NJFF is an annual event dedicated to the awareness and celebration of Jewish life in contemporary society.
