updated KCJFF 2020

Kansas City Jewish Film Festival

August 2 - 19, 2020

The Kansas City Jewish Film Festival (KCJFF) provides our diverse community an opportunity to encounter Jewish ideas and values by creating an open, inviting, and entertaining forum for films that explore issues of culture, identity, and history with a Jewish twist.

The 2020 KCJFF will be happening virtually!

This year the KCJFF is coming straight to you at home! When you purchase a ticket, you will be able to watch this film anytime within a 48-hour period. AND, everyone at home can watch it with you! You can watch it on your cell phone, tablet, computer, or even your tv, if you have that capability! (Need help? Check out our FAQs.) The 2020 KC Jewish Film Fest features 12 great films, with a combined 45 wins in both national and international film awards. Each of these films would not have been seen in the Kansas City area without the KC Jewish Film Fest. Thank you to our Donors and Sponsors who made this possible!
