The New York Jewish Film Festival: A Catered Affair For All Tastes

Tuesday, January 9----It is often said, and I would be a fool to disagree, that anyone who lives in New York City long enough becomes a kind of “honorary Jew”. Whether it is an uncontrollable yen for matzoh ball soup, a love of klezmer (Jewish soul) music, or a few Yiddishims creeping into everyday speech, New Yorkers are in spirit, if not in reality, more than just a little bit Jewish. Therefore, the 16th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival, which opens tomorrow and runs through January ...

Christmas Is Oscar Hell Week

Monday, December 25----While most industries take a rare respite during Christmas week, for the film industry it is a frenzied period that is not the least bit sleepy or relaxed. For film distributors, the Christmas-New Year's holiday period has become one of the most essential make-or-break weeks of the year, with Americans (and presumably others) adding movie-going as part of their Holiday celebrations. In other words, after the spate of last minute Christmas shopping, going out to the movie...

Israeli comedies add zest to Warsaw Jewish Motifs Fest

user
In the past two years the subject matter of this festival concentrated heavily on themes of the Holocaust and Polish-Jewish relations. This year the program is of a spicier variety with a heavier than usual input of films from Israel.
