Culture Connect Featured Event
Hit Films, Big Stars, Hot Topics and Cool Parties Coming March 20-30, 2014; Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival Grows, Spanning Cinematic Jewniverse
The 18th Annual Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival rolls out the red carpet for Hollywood legends, Oscar hopefuls, sleuths and spies, glitzy singers and a gutsy beauty queen March 20 – 30, 2014, with 23 features, thrillers, romantic comedies, shorts and documentaries from 13 countries, screening in 5 venues over 10 days.
Bank-robbing oldsters, thrill-seeking youngsters and Big Apple hipsters share the spotlight with larger-than-life historical heroes, talking animals and even a singing Jewish cowgirl at Connecticut’s largest Jewish global cinema event. Parties, live concerts and Reel Talk conversations with visiting filmmakers and musicians, an author, film subjects, historians and experts will enhance many films. For the first time, the Festival presents free student screening events at one high schools and six university campuses in Hartford, Farmington, New Britain, New Haven, Storrs and West Hartford.
