JCC Sonoma County Film Programs
THE 2021 JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL HAS CONCLUDED
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
SEE YOU AGAIN SOON FOR THE 2022 ISRAELI FILM FESTIVAL!
SHELTER IN PLACE - FILM RESOURCES AT HOME
For 26 years JCC Sonoma County has fostered a strong appreciation of Jewish and Israeli Cinema with the communities of our county. Continuing the tradition of superior cultural programs, the festival brings the newest and best of Jewish-themed and Israeli films that are rarely if ever featured on our local silver screens - and we continue to bring them to you virtually. While we are home, the JCC Film Program will provide you all sorts of resources to see Jewish and Israeli films, many of them free or greatly discounted, just for you. Visit the JCC Sonoma County YouTube Channel for staff yoga, readings, and announcements!
