About the Vancouver Jewish Film Centre

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

The Vancouver Jewish Film Centre Society (VJFC) encourages community interaction through the appreciation of motion pictures as a medium of art, information, and education.

Film has the ability to connect audiences from around the world through storytelling and shared narratives. While we remain true to our mission of showcasing the diversity of Jewish culture, heritage, and identity through film; it is fundamentally about building connections among various communities and celebrating exceptional filmmaking.

Join us for the 33rd Vancouver Jewish Film Festival  from March 3-13, 2022. Extended to March 20!

Audiences from all walks of life are encouraged to experience inspirational filmmaking and watch stories that connect us. We present some of the greatest feature dramas, comedies, thrillers, documentaries, and so much more!

The Vancouver Jewish Film Centre practices inclusion and maintains a workplace environment and a presentation space that is respectful of volunteers, staff and guests, all are treated fairly, difference is acknowledged and valued.

Our Human Resource values, principles and practices reflect a respectful, accommodating workplace.
We offer a fully accessible environment in the workplace.

There is zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, and bullying or foul language.
All communication is open and civil; conflict, if encountered, is addressed immediately.

The Vancouver Jewish Film Centre’s culture is one of empowerment, cooperation and welcoming of the other.
The same applies to all the individuals who attend or participate in the films we present at the various venues we use for our programming. 

We respectfully acknowledge that we live, play, and work on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Peoples.
