2022 Jewish FilmFest of Eastern Connecticut

Celebrating 28 years of Jewish history, culture, and identity, the Jewish FilmFest of Eastern CT, presented by the Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut, features award-winning international dramas and documentaries, including highly-acclaimed Israeli films. The FilmFest unites the community through new perspectives on Israeli and other international films, Jews around the globe, the Holocaust and current social justice issues. 

JFEC FilmFest Committee is proud to bring you the 28th Jewish FilmFest VIRTUAL & FREE* from Thursday, April 28 through Sunday, June 12. The 2022 FilmFest Committee, after much deliberation, determined for continued safety, would continue with one more year of a virtual film festival save one screening of *THE AUTOMAT. On Thursday, June 2, an in-person screening of THE AUTOMAT will be held at United Theatre, Westerly, RI. A reception prior to the film will be at 6:00 pm followed by the movie screening at 7:00 pm. Cost is $10 and proceeds will benefit Jewish FilmFest. 

While the 2022 FilmFest is free of charge, the FilmFest Committee welcomes and encourages all those who watch the film to make a donation. Donations can be made online when registering for films. Or, please mail a check to: JFEC, 28 Channing Street, New London, CT 06320. Include “FilmFest” in the memo line.
