About the Festival

The Asheville Jewish Film Festival promotes the diversity of Jewish identity, exploring the dynamic influences of history and culture on the modern Jewish experience. While the films are situated in specifically Jewish contexts, the stories told and the themes of the films are of universal interest. The festival is meant to encourage dialogue between and among Jews, as well as between Jews and others about what it means to be Jewish in our community, nation, and world, creating awareness and pride in various and differing aspects of identity.

Closing Night Film and Reception: Itzhak

“From Shubert to Strauss, Bach to... Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s transcendent violin playing evokes the depth of the human experience. This enchanting documentary details the virtuoso’s own struggles as a polio survivor and Jewish émigré, and reminds us why art is vital to life.” - Palm Springs International Film Festival
