Portland Jewish Film Festival
The Mittleman Jewish Community Center, the Institute for Judaic Studies, and the Northwest Film Center are proud to present the 19th Annual Portland Jewish Film Festival. In its run from April 3-17, 2011, the Festival celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture, and identity through the medium of cinema. The films, in their abundance, touch on tragedy, embrace humor, and recount the emotional and tangible gains and losses of a people. Highlights of this year’s Festival include: LA RAFLE (THE ROUND UP) that examines the infamous “Vel’ d’Hiv’ ” round up told through the story of one family; THE MATCHMAKER a warm comedy/drama coming-of-age story set in Haifa in 1968, and BREATH MADE VISIBLE that profiles San Francisco dance pioneer Anna Halprin.
