Virtual Jewish Film Festival
Feb. 22–Mar. 7, 2022
“This winter we are bringing back—virtually—some great films from last fall’s Jewish Film Festival for those who may have missed them, along with some new titles and shorts as well! We are delighted to announce that this special two-week, 12 program Virtual Festival will take place Tuesday, February 22 through Monday, March 7, and tickets will be available for purchase as either a Full-Festival Access Pass or as individual program tickets.
This wonderful winter festival will include Shared Legacies—Shari Rogers’ utterly fascinating exploration of the alliance between African Americans and Jewish Americans— and seven additional titles from last year’s in-theater festival, plus two new feature films: Leona, an intimate and moving film about a young Jewish woman finding her path in contemporary Mexico City, and Kiss Me Kosher, a subversive, sharp-witted romantic comedy from Israel, as well as a full shorts program of seven new films, including the delightful The Shabbos Goy.
And for those of us keen to try new recipes and read where they come from, please don’t forget to download our community-curated recipe book, “Breaking Bread: Jewish Stories and Recipes from the JBFC Community.” Many members of the JBFC and JFF communities have contributed their moving, funny, and evocative memories, as well as some absolutely mouthwatering recipes.” — Bruni Burres, festival programmer
