About Us

Held every spring in the charming coastal city of Ventura, the Ventura County Jewish Film Festival offers two weeks of programming that appeal to movie buffs of all interests and age groups. To create a more stimulating experience, we select feature films and documentaries that reflect a wide array of Jewish interests, both here and abroad.

Many of our screenings feature guest speakers, including the filmmakers themselves, who lead insightful discussions to round out the experience. Mark your calendars now to take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore Jewish history, culture, and identity through the wonderful medium of films.
