Our Mission Statement:

The mission of The Gershman Y's Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (PJFF) is to perpetuate Jewish values, culture, and history through the medium of film. By coming together to view films and participate in programs that educate, empower, and inspire us to engage in dialogue, celebrate the diversity of our culture and heritage, and learn how to be positive agents of change in our society, we gain a deeper understanding of our world and the ways in which we can individually and collectively make a difference.

As one of the longest running Jewish Film Festivals in the nation, PJFF has been proud to present the best Jewish independent cinema from around the world to Philadelphia audiences and beyond for 35 years.
