A Festival Jewish Experience
As I was preparing for the recent holidays, I came across a printed brochure at the OC Kosher supermarket. The four-color glossy is promoting the 8th Annual Pacific Jewish Film Festival (October 10 – November 4) as well as the 13th Annual Festival of Jewish Books (November 10 – December 5).
Based on our current state of media overload, you may not have heard about these kind of OC based events, so I wanted to take today’s blog to let you know about a two festivals scheduled next month in Orange County.
The Pacific Jewish Film Festival showcases intriguing films with Jewish themes from around the world. Jewish films strengthen Jewish identity and the community by expressing the jewish experience and shared memories.
I have attended this festival in the past and there have been some excellent movies to see.
Here is a list of the movies scheduled to be shown. I also found a few of the trailers on YouTube for you to preview, which are shown below each title.
The Gift to Stalin
Saviors of the Night
Jews and Baseball
Inside Hana’s Suitcase
The cost is $9 for Jewish Community Center members, $12 for the public. There is also a festival film pass which ranges from $48 – $66. The brochure directs interested parties who want more information to www.jccoc.org
Events include: A Hidden Affair, A Jew Grows Up in Brooklyn, Crossing Mandlebaum Gate, Fance Nancy Beauty Day and more.
