Every year, the Los Angeles Sephardic Jewish Film Festival brings original stories highlighting the rich heritage and culture of Sephardim to the big screen. The festival’s diverse array of films promote a deeper understanding of Sephardic Judaism for all.

The Opening Night Gala is our kick-off to the Sephardic Educational Center’s week of film. This glamorous event includes a fabulous Silent Auction, dinner, feature film, and dessert. One of our many favorite parts of the Gala is an entertaining and touching awards presentation where we proudly honor distinguished individuals for their special contributions to our community and entertainment industry.
