The Charlotte Jewish Film Festival - February 22 - March 9

CJFF New 10th Anniversary Logo 2The Charlotte Jewish Film Festival inspires the Charlotte community through film, bringing together a diverse group of film lovers to enjoy stories, characters and themes with universal appeal.  Film creates a magic all its own, especially when shared with our loyal audience exploring the universal themes of the human condition.
