The staff and leadership of the Jewish Federation are deeply grateful for your support. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival until 2021.
The highly acclaimed Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival brings the community together to experience the power of exceptional films from around the world on themes of Jewish culture and identity.
Organized by the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the festival includes five days of high quality, unique films showcasing a wide range of documentaries, dramas, comedies, and shorts by American, European, and Israeli filmmakers.
Mission Statement: The Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara produces the Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival specifically to celebrate the diversity of Jewish history, culture, and identity while hoping that the films and their stories will resonate beyond these settings and speak to universal experiences and issues that confront our common humanity.
