WTOP: Jewish Film Festival returns to nation’s capital

WASHINGTON — The Washington Jewish Film Festival returns to Washington, D.C. this month to celebrate its 26th year.

Each year, the festival celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture and experience through film and other events.

Films can be screened at a variety of locations throughout the D.C. metro area, including the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater at the DC-JCC, and the area’s two Landmark theater locations on E Street in Northwest and in downtown Bethesda.

This year’s festival will feature more than 150 screenings of nearly 70 films, many of which are regional, U.S. or world premieres.

Many of the screenings are also followed by discussions with guest filmmakers and subject-matter experts.

This year’s festival runs through March 6.
