Founded in 2011, the Michiana Jewish Film Festival (MJFF) has been a growing success in the community. Through its partnership with the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center (DPAC) and the University of Notre Dame, the Jewish Federation brings superb, and sometimes cutting edge and controversial, Jewish-themed cinema to the greater Michiana community.

Due to our continued success, many of our films sell out, filling the Browning Cinema’s 212 seats. Please purchase tickets in advance at the DeBartolo Box-office to avoid missing out.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the Michiana Jewish Film Festival please contact Monika Wayne by email or by calling 574-233-1164 x 119.
