To present films with Jewish themes from all over the world to the Greater Phoenix Community.
To increase the sense of community and cohesiveness among all Jews in the Valley of the Sun. To increase awareness of the variety and richness of Jewish culture among all residents of the Valley of the Sun.
We accomplish this mission
By presenting films reflecting past, present, and future themes of Jewish life worldwide. By encouraging participation of all Jewish organizations in the Festival. By sharing the benefits of the Festival with the entire community.
We do this because
We believe in and value our Jewish heritage. We believe in and value the contribution the film festival continues to make to our entire community. We believe Jewish films reflect these values. We believe Jewish films add to the enrichment, understanding, and perception of these values.
