Portland Jewish Film Festival

The Portland Jewish Film Festival celebrates the Jewish experience through film.  The Festival presents films which provide a forum for dialogue about Jewish heritage, culture and identity.

The Film Festival began in 1991, on a modest scale at the Oregon coast for a weekend of films along with the comments of local film critics.

This continued for five years. Interest was so high that Rabbi Stampfer asked the Northwest Film Center to develop a Jewish film festival in Portland. With NWFC as producer-artistic director and IJS as developer of community support, PJFF was born.

The festival is now one of the oldest in the country and screens annually twelve to fifteen films, drawn from countries all over the world. A few highlights of the past years include: The Rape of Europa, Shanghai Ghetto, and Fateless. Attendance is now over 2,000 each year.
