Denver Jewish Film Festival

Coming March 11 – 19, 2023

The annual Denver Jewish Film Festival (DJFF), powered by The Chotin Foundation, presents the best and brightest cinematic moments from newly-released Israeli and Jewish cinema. With more than two dozen captivating screenings, the JCC Mizel Arts and Culture Center uses the power of cinema to entertain, challenge, and educate our diverse audiences of theater lovers.

DJFF affords movie-goers the opportunity to see Jewish films that are not readily available in theaters and to regularly enjoy post-film “talk backs” that allow our patrons the opportunity to unpack the various scintillating yet often challenging themes that surface as part of the DJFF viewing experience. The high quality of the films and the Jewish themes seem to create a greater sense of community and lift the human experience in a way no other medium does.

DJFF Email List

“As much as I enjoy the energy and atmosphere of a film festival, I no longer live in a metro area and haven‘t logistically been able to do this for several years (even

pre-COVID). So I really enjoyed this opportunity to take in new films and support the festival from the comfort of my own home and on my own schedule.”

“The technology was great—much easier than I anticipated. I could easily stop & restart the movie. While I miss being in movie theaters and having the communal experience, it was nice to watch when I wanted, not to have to drive & park, deal with the crowd—although I do miss the crowd. Well done!”
