Submit Your Film
Entering its 4th year, the CJFF is introducing its first-ever Student Filmmaker Competition.

We’re looking for student filmmakers of all experience levels to share previously created or new narrative or documentary short films (an original motion picture that has a running time between 3 and 10 minutes, including all credits) that thematically aligns with the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival.

If you’re not a student, you can also submit your film for possible inclusion!
