Unexpected times call for unexpected measures…
Welcome to the VERY FIRST Edward S. Finkelstein VIRTUAL Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival. It’s a whole new world for us, with a learning curve of its own, but the good news is: while we’re all learning the ropes, we’re offering the entire festival – all films and events – FREE OF CHARGE!
Every Sunday and Wednesday, from June 28th until July 29, at 6:00 p.m., a new film – 10 in all – will be streamable onto your computer, laptop, phone, and, for many of you, your television. Click here to learn more. Each film will be available for 24 hours only.
Every Monday and Thursday, from June 29th through July 30th, at 7:00 p.m., through Zoom we’ll be providing a virtual “water cooler” where we can gather to discuss the films, or hear from one of the exceptional filmmakers we’ve invited as our guests.
ENJOY THIS SNEAK PREVIEW!

While this 2020 Film Festival season is our gift to you, if you’ve got the means to spare a few dollars, we’d like to invite you to donate to the Staff Emergency Relief Fund of our virtual (and otherwise) Festival partner, Midtown Cinema, or the Annual Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg. See below for why.
Midtown Cinema has been one of the great secrets of the Film Festival’s success for years. All of us who love this Harrisburg gem, and who want the Cinema and the staff to be there when finally we’re allowed to sit in the dark together for Festival 2021, donate here.
The Film Festival operates under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg (the central unifying communal organization in the Jewish community). In this emergency time, help Federation continue to provide crucial services and programming, by donating here.
