Jewish Film Festival

The area's Jewish Community kicked off their 2nd annual film festival Sunday night at the Jewish Community Center in Vestal.

The Jewish International Film Fest features 5 films that will run throughout the community over the two weeks. Sunday's premier was a film called "When Comedy Went to School." It takes a look at the rise of comedians in the 30s to late 60s. Organizers say they see the festival as a cultural event for the whole community.

"The films, while they always have some Jewish nature, also have kind of a universal theme," said Jewish International Film Festival Committee member Susan Hubal.
 
Over 100 people attended tonight's event. Each film is followed by a discussion session. The next film will be shown next Sunday. For more information and a schedule of the films visit binghamtonjewishfilmfest.org.
