The film is a potent and moving journey through the universal experience of loss, mourning and rebuilding a life.

IN ASSOCIATION WITH:
GRANTS & AWARDS:

The Wilmington Jewish Film Festival, in association with the Wilmington United Jewish Appeal and with the support of other community groups, is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization whose mission is, through the screening of excellent films with Jewish content, to promote a deeper understanding of Jewish history and contemporary Jewish culture. We hope to inspire appreciation for the various forms of Jewish identity and to foster a warm sense of community.


We also wish to celebrate our heritage with the general public as we offer the larger community a forum for discussion, debate, and education on the range of Jewish experiences and themes portrayed in the films we screen.
