ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
The National Center for Jewish Film is a unique, independent nonprofit motion picture archive, distributor, resource center and exhibitor. NCJF collects, preserves and exhibits films with artistic and educational value relevant to the Jewish experience, disseminating these materials to the widest possible audience. Founded in 1976, NCJF exclusively owns the largest collection of Jewish film in the world outside of Israel and is recognized as a world leader in the collection, restoration and exhibition of Jewish art and culture. The center has led the revival of Yiddish Cinema, rescuing these languishing films from oblivion.

NCJF is a major distributor of Jewish films, with over 300 films—restored classic films and contemporary independent films— available for public performance screenings and DVD purchase.
