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 the Massachusetts premiere of Maysaloun Hamoud’s In Between, about two modern women living in a hip part of Tel Aviv whose perspectives are challenged by the arrival of a new roommate, a devout Muslim. The Festival runs November 8-20 at venues throughout the Greater Boston Area. For a complete schedule, visit bjff.org.
