Our virtual 2021 Denver Jewish Film Festival brings the best of the fest directly to your living room this February 8 – 17. In a year like no other, we are so proud to present a lineup of films that are as high-quality and entertaining as ever! Eat your way through culinary fare like family-friendly drama ABE, the mouthwatering documentary BREAKING BREAD, and the hilarious CHEWDAISM: A TASTE OF JEWISH MONTREAL featuring our pals YidLife Crisis. Become inspired by powerful stories of social justice, seen in documentaries SHARED LEGACIES: THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN JEWISH CIVIL RIGHTS ALLIANCE, HEALING FROM HATE: BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF A NATION, and THEY AIN’T READY FOR ME. Enjoy heartwarming (and heartstring-pulling) films that highlight queer narratives, such as ARMY OF LOVERS IN THE HOLY LAND and SUBLET. Discover emerging filmmakers with powerful feature-film debuts SHIVA BABY and GOD OF THE PIANO, or in SHORT FILM PACKAGE: SMALL BITES featuring some of our favorite bite-sized content. Travel to Israel without ever leaving the comfort of your couch with any of our ten diverse feature-length films by and about the State of Israel – from biographical documentaries about important figures such as former Prime Minister Menachem Begin (UPHEAVAL) to new works (such as HONEYMOOD) from prominent contemporary Israeli filmmakers. Enjoy a plethora of bonus content with Q&As from over a dozen filmmakers!
This – and so much more – in your 2021 Denver Jewish Film Festival. Whether you’re enjoying on your web browser of choice, by Chromecasting to your TV, or via the Eventive Smart TV apps for Roku or Apple TV – we can’t wait to share these fabulous films with you!
