The NJFF aims to create a forum for the wider Nashville community to understand the complexity of issues surrounding Jewish life in contemporary society. The films chosen each year are meant to demonstrate the breadth and depth of the Jewish cultural, religious, historical, and social conditions of the modern era. Along with special guests, panels, and Opening and Closing Night celebrations, the NJFF is an annual event dedicated to the awareness and celebration of Jewish life in contemporary society.
Each year NJFF presents the Annual Kathryn H. Gutow Student Film Competition. Originating in 2005 and named in memory of the co-founder of the festival, the competition features student films with Jewish theme or content from campuses around the world. Student filmmakers will be eligible for a $1000 cash prize made possible by the Kathryn H. Gutow Fund for Jewish Arts and Culture and Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Student film competition finalists will be chosen to be screened during the annual Nashville Jewish Film Festival. The winning film will also be screened at the Nashville Film Festival.
$8/ticket per movie; $5/ticket per movie for students/ seniors; $5/ticket per movie for groups of 10 or more. Tickets available at The Temple beginning in October, 10:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Thursday and at the Belcourt Theatre one hour prior to each screening during the festival.
