Jewish Film Series

Chattanooga Jewish Film Series

Begun 2008 under the leadership of Sanford Winer, the Chattanooga Jewish Film Series has become a highly attended annual event. Corporate and community sponsors enable the series to be brought to the public for $8.00 per screening, which includes popcorn and a soft drink.

The goal of the series is to bring the best quality Jewish-themed films to Chattanooga and introduce people to the Jewish Cultural Center. Committee members include Sanford Winer (chair), Jen Lewis, Sheila St. Aubin, Frank Miller and Ann Treadwell, and Stephen Black.

2018 Jewish Film Series sponsor event will be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 6PM at the Jewish Cultural Center. The five films will be held every Wednesday in May – May 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30, 2018 – beginning at 7:15PM at the Jewish Cultural Center. (There will be an additional showing of “Maktub” on Sunday, May 6.) Please see visual for films and screening schedule.
