Film Festival

The Jewish and  Israeli Film Festival offers thought-provoking, entertaining, and educational film events, often featuring guest speakers and discussions.

The 22nd Annual Film Festival will debut in spring 2017 and promises to keep you entertained and informed. It will have you laughing, it may make you cry, you will be enlightened, you will ponder some deep issues, and you will want to see each one.
The JCC partners with various groups in the community to present a diverse mix of films. The films are presented at the JCC and various locations in the greater Lehigh Valley. We look forward to seeing you at the movies.
