January 29 - February 23, 2017

For over 15 years, the Triad Jewish Film Festival has brought award-winning films from National and International film festivals to the screens in Greensboro, NC. These films have been funny, heart-warming, somber, provocative and disturbing, but each represents a distinctive aspect of global Jewish history, culture and experience. Our aim is to entertain, to educate and to stimulate new thinking about both the internal and external dilemmas international Jewish communities face today.



The Triad Jewish Film Festival, a project of the Greensboro Jewish Federation, is supported by a diverse and generous group of Community sponsors. Our 4 week season will begin soon! Like us on Facebook for all the latest updates.

Join us during the month of February for the chance to view these 8 amazing films!
