It’s time for ‘lights, camera, action’ as The Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center’s Sandler Center kicks off its much-anticipated Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival (BRJFF), which runs from March 4 – March 24, 2018.  Up from just one week during its inaugural year, this year’s BRJFF boasts three weeks of compelling, entertaining and thought-provoking films about people and cultures around the globe – all with a Jewish theme or connection.  Films – 33 features and 7 shorts – will be screened at Regal Shadowood 16 in Boca Raton from March 4-17 and the Movies of Delray from March 18-23. The Festival closes on March 24th in Zinman Hall on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s campus.  Select screenings include appearances by special guests, including directors, producers, subjects of documentaries, as well as facilitated discussions and “Q & A” sessions.  


“In this second annual festival year we are proud to present an unsurpassed line-up of outstanding films and speakers for your education and entertainment. We hope you leave the theater feeling as passionate about cutting-edge Jewish films as we do,” said Wendy Honig and Lesley Rich, BRJFF Artistic Director and BRJFF Program & Production Director, respectively.
