The Berkshire Jewish Film Festival, one of the longest-running film festivals in the United States, announces its 34th season. “Due to the coronavirus pandemic and our concern for the safety and well being of our patrons and staff the festival is going virtual for 2020,” said Artistic Director Judy Seaman.

Outstanding films from around the world examining Jewish history, heritage, and culture will be available online on six consecutive Mondays from July 6th through August 10th at 4 pm and 8 pm. Access to the complete program, schedule of films with trailers, online box office and e-newsletter may be found at

This year ticket prices have been lowered to $5.00 per film with the option of an additional donation online or by mail to Knesset Israel/BJFF, 16 Colt Road, Pittsfield, MA. 01201. Information is also available at 413-445-4872, ext 25.

BJFF would not be possible without the generous support of the Wolfson Family Foundation, John Bergman Charitable Trust, Spitz—Tuchman Charitable Trust, Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Berkshire Bank Foundation, and Greylock Federal Credit Union as well as our many donors and contributors.
