NVJFF 2016 Leadership 

The J’s Cultural Arts Mission
To demonstrate, illuminate and celebrate the breadth and depth of Judaism’s culture, identity, creativity, diversity and resiliency through the performing, visual and literary arts.

The 16th annual Northern Virginia Jewish Film Festival, powered by the JCCNV, screens contemporary Jewish-themed and/or Israeli-made feature films that explore identity and place in the world. Our gratitude to the volunteers for their time and leadership, to our community partners, our sponsors, and a special thanks to Angelika Film Center at Mosaic for their generous partnership.
