Dear 2016 Festival Fans,

When 5,000 Jewish film festival fans come together over ten days to Rock ‘N Reel, magic happens.

There was heartbreak, history, hummus and humor on screen and stage at the 20th Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival March 31- April 10, 2016 plus live Israeli music, a gallery exhibit, a foodie event, 15 guest directors, artists and film subjects, parties and post-film panels to satisfy every taste, interest and palette.

We are grateful to YOU, our passionate and loyal fans, generous donors, helpful volunteers, Mandell JCC staff, and extraordinary media, hospitality, venue and corporate sponsors for helping us present a magnificent ten days of art, culture and connection. You helped us share the best of our heritage and faith with neighbors and friends, creating a ten – day gathering place for people from every corner of our community.

Your rave audience reviews included comments such as “Awesome, inspiring and moving”; “Two thumbs up” and “This year’s festival was exactly what it’s supposed to be … show up, watch a Jewish film and enjoy.”

Thank you for helping to make the 2016 Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival Rock ‘N Reel! We look forward to seeing you at the movies again next year.

Save The Dates!
