Houston Jewish Film Festival

Celebrating 16 Years of the Best Jewish and Israeli Films
CANCELED: March 21-April 1, 2020

The Evelyn Rubenstein JCC has cancelled all non-essential programs and closed all facilities, beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 29, which includes cancelling the Houston Jewish Film Festival on its current dates. A decision will be announced at a later time regarding new plans. We will email all ticket buyers directly with information about refunds. We appreciate your patience as we set up a system to handle all the refunds, while also prioritizing critical services for the community and taking care of our staff during this challenging time.

New promising, entertaining and exceptional award-winning films are featured in this annual festival, which brings Jewish lives and stories to the big screen. With venues across town, the Festival, now in its 16th year, shines the spotlight on Jewish and Israeli culture, art and history.
