Five – this is the number of films that will be screened as part of the fourth annual Jewish Film Festival in Albuquerque, beginning Thursday, July 20.
And each one of the films will have a universal theme.
“Since we’re featuring cinema from around the world and so forth, we want to create an in-depth cultural experience,” says Phyllis Wolf, director of arts, culture, education at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque. “It’s more than just a film. We are bringing people together and giving them an experience that they won’t forget. We are trying to bring in filmmakers for a question and answer period. I think that is the trend that we are going to set.”
This year’s festival is branching out from screenings at the JCC and will screen two films at Regal High Ridge 8.
