Join us for the Boston Jewish Film Festival, a cinematic showcase of the year’s best international films with Jewish themes and perspectives. Many screenings are followed by conversations with filmmakers and other special guests. This year, don’t miss Iris Zaki’s short film Women in Sink, which offers a glimpse into several women’s lives through a camera installed over a washbasin in a hair salon. The festival runs from November 9 to 21 at the MFA as well as other venues throughout the greater Boston area. Visit bjff.org for a complete schedule.
