Now in its fifth year, the Boulder Jewish Film Festival will once again explore the human experience through film and provide audiences with insight into the Jewish experience.
Using the film lens to focus on Jewish heritage, history and contemporary concerns, the festival presents a diverse collection of Boulder premieres, a mix of new feature films and documentaries on subjects including the Holocaust, Israel, Jewish historical events, Jewish contributions to popular culture and science, contemporary social and family concerns, and issues of faith, morality, tradition and values.
The festival's film screenings take place at the Boedecker Theatre, Boulder's art house theater located at the Dairy Arts Center, and at the center's 250-seat Gordon Gamm Theater. In addition to an inspiring selection of films chosen to relate to modern life, there are talks held after each and every screening. A few special screenings throughout the festival involve food and drink or special appearances.
Typically, a few filmmakers attend in person, and several more are interviewed via Skype. Day-time screenings provide convenience for seniors and families, and there is a family film suitable for elementary-age children.
