The NY Sephardic Film Festival

The NY Sephardic Film Festival  was founded in 1990 by Sephardic House (now American Sephardi Federation/Sephardic House).  It was the first Jewish film festival in New York City.

The NY Sephardic Film Festival    was founded in 1990 by Sephardic House (now American Sephardi Federation/Sephardic House).  It was the first Jewish film festival in New York City.   Its goal:

“to illuminate the scope of the Sephardic experience; to raise the consciousness of the American Jewish, and non-Jewish, community to a better understanding of Sephardic Jewry; and to present, through the medium of film, the history, literature, poetry, music, dance, customs and traditions of the Sephardic world.”

The Festival is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Every year also there are a few jewish-themed films at TIFF.

We wish to thank the Brenner Family Foundation, the Kumble Cultural Fund and the Selz Family Cultural Fund for their generous contributions in support of this program. For lovers of Sephardic themed films there is more info on the  Sephardic Jewish films festival here
