Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival
The best of independent cinema through a Jewish lens will be screened as part of the Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival. The 15th festival season takes place March 25 to April 6. Year after year, PVJFF presents critically acclaimed films that not only entertain, but also provide opportunities for reflection, discussion, and a deeper understanding of our complex, diverse world. Film screenings and accompanying programs aim to illuminate universal themes such as identity and belonging, conflict and reconciliation in the Middle East, social justice and civic engagement.
Films will be screened in Amherst, Chicopee, Greenfield, Longmeadow, Northampton, Shelburne Falls, South Hadley, Springfield and West Springfield — in venues including Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, the Northampton Center for the Arts, Rave Cinemas, Greenfield Garden Cinemas, and various colleges in the area. Schedule:
Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $9 for students and seniors (65 and older). Reserved seating is available at select screenings for $15. Festival passes cost $99 and provide admission to 13 PVJFF-ticketed films.
Tickets can be purchased online at pvjff.org, by phone at 413-739-4715 or in person at the Springfield JCC. Seating for all screenings is limited and early arrival is recommended. Tickets are sold at the door subject to availability; advance purchase is recommended as films do sell out.
Founded in 2004 and presented by the Springfield Jewish Community Center, the Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival continues its tradition of showcasing two weeks of award-winning films from throughout the world.
The purpose of the Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival is to entertain and engage diverse Valley communities by presenting world-class films and educational programs that are inspired by Jewish life worldwide.
