From Oct. 7 to Oct. 11, the annual Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival is returning for its 21st year. The festival is an exploration and celebration of Jewish and Israeli life, culture and history and includes films from all across the globe.
This year’s festival will showcase seven films, including a documentary about a 2,000-year-old Indian Jewish community’s connection to the film industry. Other films follow a Holocaust researcher’s mysterious findings, the underdog story of Israel’s national baseball team and a look at American-Indian violinist Itzahk Perlman’s career.
The 2018 Annual Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival will run at Marcus North Shore Cinema, 11700 N. Port Washington Rd., Mequon. General admission tickets for individual films can be purchased for $12. Multi-film and VIP packages are also available. Tickets can be purchased through Micki Seinfeld at the Jewish Community Center, 414-967-8235, at the Jewish Community west desk, or at the Jewish Community Center desk located inside the Marcus North Shore Cinema entrance one hour prior to each film.
