30+ Films Explore the Jewish Experience

Boca Raton, FL (Sept. 14, 2020) – The Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center’s Sandler Center announces its first-ever virtual Fall Judy Levis Markhoff Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival (BRJFF). The virtual festival will run from September 29 – December 25, 2020 and will feature narrative, documentary and short films, all with a Jewish theme, from around the world. Special to this year’s virtual festival are webinars with filmmakers and cast members and the opportunity to view the film up to 72 hours after its scheduled time. The broad array of films explores the Jewish experience, culture, history, identity, and topics relevant to Jewish life with a diverse collection of 30+ international and independent premiere films from over 22 countries.
“COVID-19 has given us a unique opportunity to engage with our community from the comfort and safety of their homes, while expanding our reach to film lovers around the country, and overseas,” said Wendy Honig BRJFF Artistic Director.

“We continue to present an unsurpassed line-up of films and speakers while adapting to our new normal,” said Lesley Rich, BRJFF Program & Production Director.
Tickets for documentary films are $10 and $12 for feature films (prices are per household); tickets are available for purchase online at bocajff.org. A full program guide including dates, showtimes, and a synopsis of each film is also available on the website. For more information, contact Lisa Barash at lisab@bocafed.org or call 561-558-2514.
