2019 Judy and Steve Halpert Audience Choice Award Winners

Thank you to the Festival goers who helped choose the 2019 Judy & Steve Halpert Audience Choice Award winners by filling ourt our Film Survey and ranking the films they viewed.

The top films were The Last Suit, a touching comedy drama from Argentina and Who Will Write Our History, a vital Holocaust documentary.

Thank you again to our Supporters who make it possible, our Board Members, Volunteers and Staff who make it happen and especially our Audience, who make it meaningful. See you next year for the 2020 Maine Jewish Film Festival!

Through a diverse array of independent films, the MJFF provides culturally relevant and historically significant cinema for audiences from across Maine and beyond. The Portland Museum of Art is proud to partner with Maine Jewish Film Festival, promoting new ideas, inviting discussion, and strengthening the cultural economy in Maine.
