About VJFC


Mission Statement

Showcasing the diversity of Jewish culture, heritage and identity through film.

The Vancouver Jewish Film Centre hosts the longest running Jewish film festival in Canada, the Vancouver Jewish Film Festival. We have an established track record and we are proud to bring the best and most current films to our Vancouver communities.

The Centre and Film Festival are inclusive, encouraging multi-cultural interaction while presenting high quality entertainment. Comedies, feature dramas, thrillers, hot and timely documentaries and whimsical shorts are programmed to appeal to a wide audience base.

Besides the highly successful annual Film Festival, we also run monthly screenings for seniors and join with other community organizations to show entertaining and engaging films throughout the year.
