JFilm Festival
The 19th Annual JFilm Festival brings the best international Jewish films to Pittsburgh-area audiences. What makes a film “Jewish?” The stories have to have a Jewish theme; the subject matter is important to the Jewish community; the characters, actors or director are Jewish and somehow touch on Jewish issues, or, in the case of films from Israel, the movie shares something of Israeli life or culture that we wouldn’t ordinarily experience. The films run the gamut from narratives to documentaries, dramas to comedies.
