Everyone, yes everyone is welcome and invited to attend the 19th Annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival (LVJFF) being presented January 9 – 26, 2020.

2020 LVJFF movie highlights include:

WRENCHED, the story of Earth First; the radical environmental movement inspired by the words of Edward Abbey. Renown environmental author Terry Tempest Williams will moderate.

AULICIE and PICTURE OF HIS LIFE, two new documentaries about basketball and polar bears by award-winning Israeli filmmaker Dani Menkin who will moderate. 

LEONA, a new Spanish language drama (w/English subtitles) about love in Mexico City presented at the new Maya Cinemas in North Las Vegas. Rabbi Filipe Goodman of Temple Beth Sholom (originally from Mexico City) will moderate. 

LIVE TO BEAR WITNESS (an original documentary produced by LVJFF) has Holocaust Survivors ask important questions of students and teachers about what will happen when they are no longer with us to carry the message.

And much more thoughtful cinema to be announced!

A few additional thoughts:

  • The complete 2020 LVJFF program schedule will be posted on lvjff.org in December 2019.
