The Ring Family Jewish Film Festival

This year’s festival has been canceled due to the national public health emergency.

The Ring Family Jewish Film Festival presents three to four films during the fall and spring of each academic year. Join us for a different film focusing on Jewish life, history, tradition, and or culture as you enjoy pre-movie refreshments.

The film festival is funded by the Ring Family Fund and sponsored by Oberlin Hillel and the Jewish Studies Program Committee.
