The Film Festival Needs Your Support

Movies are free. Your support makes that possible.

See information about the films that were shown in 2019 here.

Mark your calendars! Saturday, April 25, 2020, is opening night for the 2020 SCJFF, once again featuring a delicious reception prepared by Zena and a raffle of baskets filled with goodies. The Film Festival Committee is busy screening films and arranging venues. Watch for the program in the March or April Shofar.

Your generous donations help with the cost of the film rentals and venues. We couldn’t have a Film Festival without your support! Donor contributions start at just $18. Please consider supporting the 2020 SCJFF. Make checks out to TBE and note in the memo section it's for the Film Festival or SCJFF. Watch for more information about films, volunteer opportunities, and donating raffle prizes. Please contact Marcia Meyer at with any questions.
