Celebrating 21 years of bringing the best in international cinema to Maine.
Coming March 10 – 18 -the 2018 Festival will feature thirty films from around the world and present a dynamic week of parties, guests and special events. One of the nation’s oldest independently-curated Jewish Film Festivals, MJFF is committed to the belief that diversity is at the heart of what fuels a great festival and a great community.

You’ll meet a Hollywood star with an unexpected talent, a couple who created a well loved children’s character under difficult circumstances and a cynical detective trying to solve a complex case in Tel Aviv. You’re sure to be entertained, informed, surprised and moved. Stay tuned for complete details coming in February.
