A Chai Achievement

Welcome to the 18th annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival (LVJFF) being presented January 10 – 27, 2019.

LVJFF shares insight into Jewish identity, history, and culture, promotes solidarity with Israel and remembrance of the Holocaust.

LVJFF is presented with major support provided by Desert Space Foundation, Adelson Family Foundation, Israeli American Council, Adelson Educational Campus, Las Vegas Review-Journal, National Endowment for the Humanities, Nevada Humanities, South Point Hotel Casino, Jewish Nevada/Jewish Community Center, Anti-Defamation League, and Jewish National Fund. Additional support is provided by Las Vegas Clark County Library District, UNLV Libraries Jewish Heritage Project, Brenden Theatres, Eclipse Theaters, Imagine Communications, and numerous generous individual contributors.

In honor of our 18th Chai anniversary year, a new documentary about historic and contemporary Jewish women of Southern Nevada is being produced and will premiere as the opening night film of the 2019 LVJFF. Our complete 2019 LVJFF program will be announced and detailed on the lvjff.org website in November.
