Buy your tickets, get some popcorn, and grab your seats … The York JCC is going to the Movies!
The York Jewish Community Center is proud to host an Annual Jewish Film Festival every fall. York is among the smallest communities to offer a Jewish Film Festival, understanding the importance and impact that film has on the masses to bring people together. Year after year the Festival brings together our community and its neighbors for an exciting showcase of world cinema and Jewish Culture.
*Patron and Sponsorship Opportunities Available.
Thanks to you, our moviegoers, we are thrilled to introduce our new festival format and venue. This year we will be partnering with Small Star Art House. By consolidating our festival over the course of four consecutive days we hope to create a renewed sense of enthusiasm and support for this beloved showcase of Jewish and Israeli cinema while engaging and enriching our community through the love for the silver screen. Join us for this special event. Tickets are available at the JCC. Please purchase your tickets in advance as there is limited seating and this festival is sure to sell out! Street parking is available.
Support the JCC’s work by becoming a Patron and help bring the best of Jewish films to our community. By becoming a patron, you play a role in the success of our annual festival.
