Austin Jewish Film Festival
Sat, March 24, 2012 • Congregation Agudas Achim on the Dell Jewish Community Campus and the Regal Arbor Cinema
The tenth annual Austin Jewish Film Festival.
The Austin Jewish Film Festival provides a cinematic examination of Jewish life and culture, an open and inviting forum for student and independent filmmakers to present their work and an exploration of universal themes including human rights, global peace, religious freedom, and tolerance.
This year, the tenth annual Austin Jewish Film Festival features films of all genres from Israel, the U.S., France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Poland, and the U.K. and kicks off with a performance by world-renowned musician David Amram. Amram will stick around for the festival's opening film on March 24, the documentary David Amram: The First 80 Years, after which he will participate in a Q&A session with director Lawrence Kraman.
The festival continues throughout the week with FREE noon films each day at the Arbor Cinema. Additionally, by popular request, “Best of the Fest” will feature two favorite films from years past at 4:30 p.m. on March 28th and 29th—also presented FREE to the community.
