Nashville Jewish Film Festivals Continues in November

The 2021 Nashville Jewish Film Festival began on October 14 and is continuing until November 11, so you still have time to watch entertaining, interesting, and informative films in the comfort of your own home. 

Seven films will be shown that are as varied as the Jewish world itself, ranging from THE ONE AND ONLY JEWISH MISS AMERICA to a documentary on controversial figure George SOROS, a film about the 2015 terrorist attack in Copenhagen, a look at how Shtetl life pervaded the culture of the former Soviet Union and a romantic look at the life of two Russian emigrees in Israel.

We are grateful to the many generous people in our community who have sponsored the 2021 festival.  It is through their generosity that we are able to make available films that would not have commercial screenings but reflect upon our lives and history.


The Nashville Jewish Film Festival is grateful to our 2021 sponsors.
