Thank you to everyone who attended the 2018 Maine Jewish Film Festival – you helped to make it the biggest Festival yet!

We’re so pleased that the winner of the Judy and Steve Halpert Audience Choice Award is Carvalho’s Journey.

The film tells the largely unknown story of Solomon Nunes Carvalho, an observant Sephardic Jew born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1815, who was a groundbreaking photographer, artist and pioneer in American history. To find out more visit the National Center for Jewish Film.
