St. Louis, MO-Explore the role of Jewish Culture in cinema today at the Jewish Film Festival June 13-17 at Landmark Plaza Frontenac Cinema. Now in its 15th year, The Jewish Film Festival, presented by the Jewish Community Center of St. Louis, will feature three to five movies per day.

The films will span a variety of genres, including family-friendly movies. To watch the previews and plan accordingly, check out the Jewish Film Festival Schedule as show times vary.

The Premier Party to kick-off the festivities will begin at 6 p.m. and include a light supper buffet (dietary laws observed) followed by a 7:30 p.m. showing of “A Matter of Size,” a comedy about four friends who form an unlikely Israeli sumo wrestling team. Advanced reservations are required; the cost is $70 per person.

Even when the film festival ends, the cultural experience doesn’t have to. The Jewish Film Society of the JCC welcomes every cineaste to join the discussion of cultural diversity year round. Memberships are $36 per individual, $54 per couple and $18 per student and include one free ticket to a Film Society Program (regularly $6 per adult and $5 per student), a Jewish Film Society Series pass available for $25, the official society newsletter and invitations to film screenings not otherwise open to the general public. All memberships are tax deductible and will benefit the Jewish Film Society.
