The San Diego Jewish Film Festival (SDJFF) is an annual eleven day long film festival held in San Diego, California. Established in 1990, the festival is managed by the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture, at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center in La Jolla. The festival usually consists of around fifty narrative, documentary, and short films, often with post-film audience discussions with the filmmakers. The San Diego Jewish Film Festival "aims to educate and illuminate audiences by offering an array of films that depict elements of the Jewish life, history, and culture in challenging, moving, and humorous ways as never seen before."

The festival draws more than 20,000 ticket holders at five theatres throughout San Diego County: AMC La Jolla 12 Theatres, the UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at Hazard Center and UltraStar Poway Creekside Plaza 10, the David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre at the Lawrence Family JCC, and on the campus of San Diego State University at the Not Quite Kosher Film Festival.[1]
