International Films abound at the 27th Annual Washington Jewish Film Festival

Twenty-seven years on, the Washington Jewish Film Festival remains a vibrant part of the Nation’s Capital scene. As the area’s largest Jewish cultural event, the 12-day program of documentary and narrative movies, running from May 17-28, will feature 63 features and 18 short films representing 25 countries. Screenings, related talks, a concert featuring traditional Yiddish music, and even a bar crawl will happen across the metropolitan area, including the AFI Silver Theatre (Silver Spring MD), Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema (Bethesda MD), Landmark E Street Cinema, the National Gallery of Art, and the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater at the Edlavitch DCJCC. Attendees from out of town using the Metrorail system should visit the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s SafeTrack website here, to see if any of the track work will impact their schedule.
