The Denver Jewish Film Festival runs from February 5 – 19 at the JCC Mizel Arts and Culture Center. Presented by the Sturm Family Foundation, the Festival is now in its 24th year of presenting the best and brightest cinematic moments from newly-released Israeli and Jewish cinema.
The Festival includes 43 films showcasing Israeli and Jewish cinema from around the globe, featuring 16 Denver premieres, six Colorado premieres and 14 Rocky Mountain premieres. See the Festival Line up here.
“The Denver Jewish Film Festival provides an opportunity for people of all faiths and backgrounds, film lovers and international film buffs to watch a variety of one-of-a-kind movies that are not available in other theaters in Colorado,” said Steve Wilson, executive artistic director of the JCC Mizel Arts and Culture Center. “We are thrilled to announce the incredible line-up of films in the 2020 film festival.”
The festival kicks off on Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. with a VIP reception and a screening of Crescendo (Drama, 2019) at 7 p.m. The film is about a world famous conductor who tries to create an Israeli-Palestinian orchestra, taking all his skill and resources to overcome the discord and get them to play in harmony.
Seating for all films is reserved. Tickets to each film cost $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and students. Multi-film festival passes are also available for purchase at varying costs. Festival tickets can be purchased at www.jccdenver.org/film.
