THE TWIN CITIES JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL OPENS MARCH 18, 2017!
A PARTNERSHIP OF THE SABES JCC AND THE ST. PAUL JCC
For Immediate Release: February 7, 2017
Minneapolis/St. Paul—The Sabes JCC and the St. Paul JCC are thrilled to announce the film line-up of the Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival, scheduled to open on March 18, 2017. A partnership of the Sabes JCC and the St. Paul JCC, this year’s festival includes thought-provoking films designed to build bridges and create dialogue; entertaining films designed to make us laugh and cry; and groundbreaking films that are not offered in other venues in the Twin Cities. Plus, our “beyond the screen” programs provide the opportunity to gather together for deeper and enriching engagement that keeps the conversation going long after the credits have rolled. Opening night (March 18) will feature the Advanced Screening of The Zookeeper’s Wife, the real-life story of a working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II; Sunday, March 19 will feature THREE Midwest premiers of The Children of Chance at 2 PM, 1945 at 4 PM, and The Women’s Balcony at 7:30 PM, Israel’s #1 film of the year featuring a good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power in a time of crisis; the Festival will host the world premiere of Escape From Room 18, a documentary on American anti-Semitism (March 23); the Festival will conclude at the St. Paul JCC with the Minnesota premiere Bang! The Bert Berns Story. This year’s Festival truly has something for everyone!
