Dear Friends,

What a time we’ve had selecting this year’s lineup of films – so many remarkable features and documentaries to choose from!  it seems as if the dozens of films we’ve screened since last December are of higher quality than ever before, creating a challenge solved only by bringing you two extra Festival days and two more fabulous films than last year.

This year we are offering twelve great films, reflecting a broad range of Jewish culture, values and experiences, coming to us from Germany, Austria, Canada, France, Israel and the U.S.  Several of them will be accompanied by either a director, producer or subject/actor.

A wide variety of stories includes family secrets, an Israeli astronaut’s legacy, Holocaust memories repressed, expressed and fictionalized, and young people seeking to make sense out of relationships and the Arab-Israel conflict.  Who knew the story behind the universally-celebrated melody, Hava Nagila?  You will be pleased that these twelve great films range from the delightfully comedic to the dramatic and thought-provoking.

That gives you a sense of just some of the films that will engage and keep you talking long after you leave the theater.  Please join us as we once again bring you high-quality, first-run cinema along with delicious receptions and inspiring programs.  Please check out the Festival lineup for more details.

See you at the movies!
