Jewish Film Series


Chattanooga Jewish Film Series

Begun 2006 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 $7.00 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), Sheila St. Aubin, Frank Miller and Ann Treadwell, and Stephen Black.

The Fall, 2016 Annual Jewish Documentary Film Series will kick off Wednesday, November 30 at 7 p.m. with a showing of “Projections of America” and “Autobiography of a Jeep,” sponsored by The Charles H. Coolidge Medal of Honor Museum Heritage Center. Cost to attend each film screening is $7 and includes popcorn and a drink.

The series will continue with “Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict” on Wednesday, December 7, sponsored by Austin Center and Acuity Merchant Services. Wednesday, December 14, join us for “Morganthau” (sponsor TBD).
