Victoria International Jewish Film Festival

Captivating Cultural  Cinema
Celebrating 10 years!
November 2-7, 2024

Details forthcoming!



Enlightening &  Entertaining

2023’s 9th annual VIJFF attracted a record number of attendees from a diversity of Victoria communities! Modelling how a program of fulsome ‘film events’ attracts appreciative audiences, the 2023 VIJFF exemplified community building within Victoria’s Jewish community, meaningful engagement with and outreach to others, and strong support from partners & funders. Captivating its audiences in a celebration of inter-culturalism, the 2023 VIJFF staged its curated programme of films as ‘film events’ with live music and snacks (nosh). With a view to tikkun olam, a prototype High School Film Event engaged with the film Neighbours and a Family Program entertained with a short film, storyteller, and music. These will inform the program for 2024’s 10th annual VIJFF!

Save the Date!


VIJFF 2024

Leveraging its cross-cultural foundations to create captivating ‘film events’, the VIJFF’s upcoming program will again attract a diversity of audiences:  cinephiles, families, and those for whom Jewish & Jewish-adjacent themes are of cultural interest.

Details forthcoming.
