This year, the Sacramento Jewish Film Festival is going virtual! Streaming 24 feature films and numerous shorts over 22 days this year’s festival promises something for everyone. We are presenting everything from dramas and comedies to documentaries and biographies, from 10 different countries. (All foreign films are in English or have English subtitles.)
The diverse subjects include music, art, dance, comedy, sports, youth, history, espionage, Jewish-Muslim relations, disability experiences, LGBTQ issues, the Holocaust and its aftermath, and more. A number of live Zoom chat events will allow viewers to discuss films with directors, actors, film subjects, and subject experts, and each other. Film descriptions and movie trailers can be found here.
All films will be available for streaming for 3 days or longer according to the interactive calendar at the festival website.
