After many successful years as a single day, event as part of the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival, the Joyce Forum has blossomed into its own two-day festival. The ffirst-ever international, standalone Jewish short film festival offers imagination-stretching short films from across the globe and from almost every cinematic genre: documentary, drama, comedy, horror, animation and more.

This standalone festival will take place October 6-7, 2018 (with an additional evening of shorts on the 8th for a Brews and Views event) We believe this festival is the first of its kind across the globe, and have already received over 130 film submissions with Jewish content from 17 countries! The Joyce Forum Short Film Festival will showcase elements of Jewish life, history, and culture, or include films created by Jewish filmmakers. Q&As and discussions with renowned filmmakers and other special guests will be included to enhance your festival experience. 

  • As part of their benefits Underwriters of the San Diego International Jewish Film Festival at the Producer and above levels will receive two Joyce Forum Short Film Festival Passes.
  • As part of their benefits Underwriters at the Director and lower level can “Bring a Friend” to the Joyce Forum Short Film Festival by buying one pass and getting the second pass free

Israeli short films are presented in partnership with The Murray Galinson San Diego-Israel Initiative, who have invited Israeli filmmakers to San Diego for a two-week artist residency.
