16th annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival—“On the Map”
January 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
The 16th annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival will run Jan. 14 – 29. The longest running, most popular film festival in Nevada continues to present informative and entertaining contemporary global Jewish cinema for the entire community.
The opening night screening is “On the Map,” the true story of the 1977 Israeli Maccabi Basketball team that made history by beating the Soviet Red Army team and winning their first European title. The film’s director, Dani Menkin, will be in attendance to conduct a dialogue with the audience after the screening.
“Our goal with this annual film festival is to make quality Jewish films available to the local community — Jewish and non-Jewish alike — who might not otherwise be exposed to this art form, especially because many of our films are foreign, obscure or previously unavailable,” said Joshua Abbey, the festival’s director. “A number of these movies, both fiction and nonfiction, tackle important historical, cultural and social issues, so anyone can find something of value and interest.”
LVJFF passes are $50, and individual tickets are $10. All students and education professionals are invited to attend for free. For more detailed information, visit lvjff.org.
