The 2017 Berkshire Jewish Film Festival season has begun! 12 films spread over 6 consecutive Mondays, July 10th through August 14 in the Duffin Theater at Lenox Memorial High School.
The 31st annual Berkshire Jewish Film Festival is one of the longest running events of its kind in the country. While it started out as a much smaller affair, held at the Knesset Israel sanctuary, the festival has grown every year to its current venue at the 500-seat, up-to-date, Duffin Theatre at Lenox Memorial High School.
More than 100 films are previewed for the festival. Despite a prominence of Jewish themes and content, Berkshire Jewish Film Festival films are meant to be screened before a varied audience – not just Jews. Consequently, films are also picked for their universal ability to move, inform, amuse, and inspire audiences.
This year’s festival continues the tradition with 12 films from the United States, Israel, Poland, Portugal, India, Hungary, the Netherlands, and England.
