2019 Summer Jewish Film Festival at Falmouth Jewish Congregation

Tuesdays, July 2 – August 6 and again on August 27 

The 2019 season is now over, leaving us with memories of the ways we were prodded, surprised, enlightened and entertained by a rich mix of seven documentaries and dramatic features. Films ranged in origin from Israel to Denmark to Slovakia and the U.S. We learned of Dr. Ruth’s youth spent in a Swiss orphanage, we fictional portrayal of the larger-than-life adventures of French author Romain Gary and of the Jewish bourgeoisie in late 19th-century Denmark, and we got an early exposure to the now-on-big-screens, popular Palestinian dramedy “Tel Aviv on Fire.”

Thanks to attendees for working with our new on-line ticketing, which significantly streamlines the entry process.
