Jewishfilm.2015 Festival Directors: Lisa E. Rivo & Sharon Pucker Rivo
Since 1976, NCJF—a unique independent, nonprofit film archive, distributor and exhibitor—has rescued, restored and exhibited films that document the diversity and vibrancy of Jewish life.
NCJF’s archive collection of 15,000 reels of film with Jewish content is the world’s largest outside of Israel. The Center has restored more than 100 endangered “orphan” films, the earliest from 1903. These rare films now screen worldwide and appear in hundreds of documentaries, artworks and museum exhibitions.
A world leader in the collection and exhibition of Jewish film and culture, NCJF provides consultation to 7,000 people each year. The Center supports independent filmmakers by distributing their new productions and overseeing new films produced under its aegis.
NCJF needs your help. Thousands of films exclusively owned by the Center are in critical need of preservation and digitization. The restoration of 35mm, 16mm and 8mm film is extremely costly. Without your support, these rapidly deteriorating moving images will fade into history.
