Get Ready for the first ever virtual Sacramento Jewish Film Festival – A Program of the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region and the Jewish Community Relations Council.

Our festival promises to amuse, entertain, inspire, educate, and provide opportunities to share this experience together. We will offer a wide variety of films and related experiences: comedies, dramedies, dramas, documentaries, live Zoom chats with filmmakers, and community forums where we can exchange thoughts and feelings about the films we saw!

Films:
Tango Shalom
A Chasidic rabbi who needs money discovers his talent for tango dancing by chance and has to find a way to dance with the beautiful dance teacher without violating his religious beliefs about not touching a woman other than his wife. He consults a priest, an imam, Sikh religious leaders, rabbis, and HaShem. He deals with loving family and good-hearted people for the most part, except for the gossips. A happy movie with music and dance and humor and good people trying to help and do their best, as well as a multicultural element rarely seen in movies.

Length: 115 minutes

Director: Gabriel Bologna

Land of Milk and Funny
After performing in Israel, Avi Liberman, a Jewish-American comedian, made a commitment to return each year and to bring other comedians with him. Ten years and 30 comedians later, he has developed a format to provide sorely needed comedic entertainment in Israel and to provide a significant travel and performance experience for the comedians. This film is funny with poignant moments.

Length: 78 minutes

Director: Avi Liberman

A Call to Spy
Two women are sent to France as British spies during WWII. Their handler is a Jewish woman who is trying to gain British citizenship. Many of their contacts are killed by the Gestapo and their French collaborators.

Length: 123 minutes

Director: Lydia Dean Pilcher

After Munich
After Munich is about the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre of 11 Israeli athletes, and how four women’s lives have been changed by the massacre.

Length: 70 minutes

Director: Francine Zuckerman
