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 by and 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. This year's opening night film is the story of an artistic genius who redefined the language of modern dance, and is guaranteed to leave you skipping.
