JFilm, a program of Film Pittsburgh, presents independent films from around the world to deepen both Jewish and general audiences’ understanding of Jewish culture, tolerance, and our common humanity. JFilm offerings attract those interested in international, independent and/or Jewish-themed films. A broad range of programming is designed to reach people of all races, religions, ages and abilities, and emphasis is placed on collaboration with other organizations.
The organization was started in 1994 by a community volunteer and the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.
JFilm is supported by corporations, local and national foundations, government grants and individual donors.
