Organized by the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival features five days of world-class international and independent comedies, dramas, documentaries, and shorts from Israel, Europe, Canada, and the U.S. premiering for the first time in Santa Barbara.

Sixteen programs include Q&As with filmmakers and panel discussions with thought leaders around some of the most compelling issues facing the Jewish world today.

All net proceeds support the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara’s cultural programming, Portraits of Survival Holocaust education, and social support services.
