STAY TUNED for upcoming screenings and mini festivals!

For over three decades, we have inspired, connected, educated, and entertained through film.


When Jews Were Funny

Alan Zweig’s 2013 documentary “When Jews Were Funny” surveys the often colorful history of Jewish comedy in America. The documentary is insightful, often hilarious and packed with one-liners. While taking the viewer on the journey through the history of Jewish comedy, a second journey is taken in the exploration of what it means to be Jewish in America.

Most watched feature when it screened at our annual festival that year!
