The Ventura County Jewish Film Festival is pleased to announce that the 18th Annual Festival will again occur virtually.  We will have films for Yule at the Shul, Valentine’s Day, and then the full festival in April 2021.


Welcome to the Ventura County Jewish Film Festival. We’re virtual for 2021 with nine feature-length films curated for you among the best Jewish-themed cinema. Among this coming year’s film offerings are When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, and The Cantor’s HeadThe full rundown of the season is described HERE.

This is where you’ll find the festival calendar, information on how to watch the films, how to buy a season pass, and how to make a sponsorship donation.

Because the distributors are still charging us significant fees for the privilege of showing their movies, we must come to you for sponsorships and donations.  Won’t you consider supporting this well-loved community event? Sponsorship opportunites are detailed HERE.

Next up will be our Valentine Day’s offering, Saul and Ruby’s Holocaust Band. The band’s music is an integral part of the heartwarming story of two nonagenarians who live to entertain their peers. Viewing Window: February 12-14; Discussion at Noon, February, 14th.  (scroll down for the trailer)

This year, we’re offering a flexible viewing-time full SUBSCRIPTION PASS which will be available to all members of your household for $85.00. Of course, we will be thrilled if you chose to hop on board as supporters with additional contributions. TICKETS FOR INDIVIDUAL MOVIES (good for an entire household) can be purchased for $18.

DONATE HERE (specify Jewish Film Festival) or mail your check to TBT (memo: VCJFF) to the Temple office to purchase tickets.

Gary Feldman,
Festival Chairman
