THE 2017 JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL

March 12-19, 2017

 


Welcome to the 2017 Jewish Film Festival of Sarasota-Manatee!

 

We are exceedingly proud to present a premiere line-up of eleven truly outstanding and diverse films that will excite, enlighten, and provoke you, our audience.

 

These eleven films provide a fascinating, multi-dimensional window into Jewish history and Jewish values, and introduce us to people‑‑Jews and non-Jews‑­‑with great vision and courage. Together, they expose us to a variety of historical, personal, and emotional experience--both real and fictional--that can inform our thinking, expand our perspectives, and strengthen our connection to the larger world of the Jewish people.
