For over 30 years, the William and Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival has presented outstanding films of Jewish interest, as well as film education opportunities.

Join us this May 7-29, 2024 as our 36th annual festival presents a diverse selection of engaging films examining Jewish history, heritage, and culture. Festival films include:

Martha Liebermann: A Stolen Life (Germany, 2023)
Seven Blessings (Israel, 2023)
All About the Levkoviches (Hungary, 2024)
Children of Nobody (Israel, 2022)

All films are presented in-person at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, and are curated by The William and Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival Committee.

Individual screening tickets are $16 each. A subscription to all films is $60, or you can support the festival as a Best Supporting Actor for $100. BSAs will be admitted to the theatre 10 minutes prior to general audiences for each screening.

How to Submit Your Film

To be eligible for consideration, films should have a US release date no more than two years prior to the festival. Films streaming on major platforms are not eligible for consideration, nor are films that have had a broad theatrical release. Limited theatrical release may be considered. Please contact us to inquire about eligibility.

The BJFF seeks engaging films of Jewish interest. This can be interpreted broadly to mean any film that addresses Jewish history, heritage, culture, or characters, as well as Israeli films. The festival values diversity of genre, so drama, comedy, documentary, and more are welcome. An Audience Favorite Award is selected using a simple scoring system.

To submit your film for consideration, please send a trailer and a screener. A trailer is required for best consideration.
