As much a labor of love as a mission, The Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival strives to bring the finest examples of cinema from around the world to South Florida. The chosen films are as diverse as our community. Some focus on Jewish issues, others spotlight Jewish achievement and valor; still others document Jewish culture, arts, and history.
All of our films celebrate the Jewish experience and the diversity of the community. Founded in 1990 the festival continues to grow and evolve as we continue to expand our selection of narrative features, short films and documentaries to reflect the tastes and needs of our audience. Now year-round, we continue the process of engaging, entertaining and educating through film events for greater Palm Beach County.
