The Northwest Film Center and the Institute for Judaic Studies are proud to present the 19th Annual Portland Jewish Film Festival. In its run from April 3 17, 2011, the Festival celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture, and identity through the medium of cinema. The films, in their abundance, touch on tragedy, embrace humor, and recount the emotional and tangible gains and losses of a people.

Visiting artists include Judith Arcana, Grace Paley's literary biographer, introducing the film GRACE PALEY: COLLECTED SHORTS about the author (¬Å“The Little Disturbances of Man¬Â) and activist, whose female and urban New York tales, filled with emotional and sexual frankness, became classics in the 1950s; Anna Halprin will introduce BREATH MADE VISIBLE a profile of her dance legacy and career in San Francisco; and director Sandra Shulberg will introduce her film NUREMBERG: ITS LESSONS FOR TODAY, a remarkable documentary about the post-war Nuremberg trials, released in Germany in 1948, but never seen in the United States until now.

    as one of the very few Jews in town, I think I should represent
    (oh and yeah, I am dying to go and can’t afford it… I am unsuccessful Jewess)

    Wow, I love living in a city again. What a great event. I would love to go, but am a little short on cash.

  6. Bobbie March 30, 2011 at 8:54 pm #

    Definately on my to do list, especially if I win some tickets!

    I grew up in a protestant home and have only recently made friends with some Jewish people. I am interested in learning more about their culture so I can be more infrmed and less ignorant.

    I have been so moved by the films that I’ve seen coming out of this region recently. I would love to be able to be exposed to more Jewish cinema.

  9. Sarah March 31, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    I am thoroughly not exposed enough to Jewish Cinema! Please let me win, as I work in a Jewish neighborhood!

  10. Samantha March 31, 2011 at 11:17 am #

    Sounds like something my fiance and I would enjoy. Both Jews!

  11. Nicole March 31, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    Wow this looks like such a great event! my partner and I would both adore going, and although we are not Jewish, one of our best friends is and it’s his birthday this weekend i can’t think of a better gift to give him!

  12. Bill Weismann March 31, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    I would like to broaden my cinematic horizons by taking in a few of the JFF flicks.

  13. Amelia Santiago March 31, 2011 at 2:36 pm #

    I would love to be able to see every film in this festival. Each one looks so good. I especially want to see the polish film, “Little Rose” and “I Miss You” from Argentina. This seems to be an amazing collection and I want to take advantage of the chance to see films that don’t normally screen in our little city.

    I recently had a baby this past Christmas & have not had an opportunity to have a night out since before the baby was born. Come on now, Julian, I’ve been trying to win something from you since forever! I would like to get a babysitter for the baby so I can take my brother & a couple of friends. Please, Julian? Thank you.

    Gah! I have missed this festival each year, and would so love the mitzvah of being able to be able to attend in full. But even if I don’t win, I will pick a good one to see and support it. Thanks for publicizing this! I didn’t realize it was upon us and am glad not to miss it this year.

    I am about to begin dating a lovely Mexican-born gentleman who lives in my neighborhood. I think these tickets to this festival would be a lovely way to introduce him to my cultural/ethnic/religious background of Judaism and Jewish life, without dragging him to synagogue as a first or third date!

  17. Matthew March 31, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

    We’re a Jewish couple and rarely are able to attend film screenings. This would be perfect for us.

  18. ANS March 31, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

    1. I, indeed, am somewhat Woody-Allen-centric in my Jewish Film experience and I would like to know what’s out there, especially considering the great lineup in place for this festival.
    2. My boyfriend and I live and work together and never go out, so this would be a GREAT date, especially since his family is Israeli, and I’m always looking to be more informed and aware of Jewish culture
    3. Alternative to 2, I could use these tickets as a gift for boyfriend and his mom, or take his mom out to the movie, thus scoring major points for all involved.

    Az di bobe volt gehat beytsim volt zi geven mayn zeyde!

    Now, let’s go see some films!

  20. Selena March 31, 2011 at 3:59 pm #

    I am very interested in Jewish culture, and am a anthropology major. I would love to go with my boyfriend, who is Jewish.

  21. Sarah S March 31, 2011 at 4:04 pm #

    Though I’m not Jewish, my husband is. I am always trying to learn more about human nature and the most extreme events in human history. I would love to win some tickets to this film festival!

  22. jm March 31, 2011 at 4:15 pm #

    Sounds really interesting! Would love to go.

  23. Jason Castro March 31, 2011 at 4:44 pm #

    I’m interested in all genres of film, from all places in the world. Send me to this, so I can continue to gain some influence from the many geniuses in the world.

    I would love to see the films of my heritage.

  25. jimbobber March 31, 2011 at 7:40 pm #

    Ah!! Jewish films and free bagels ‘n schmeer.

  26. Lynette L March 31, 2011 at 7:48 pm #

    Wow! What an opportunity! I’d love to experience the films at this festival. I can think of several people to take, all excited to share this opportunity too. I have no Jewish ties, but have made it my life to experience other cultures via many ways, travelling, helping exchange students, movies…etc.

  27. Alona March 31, 2011 at 8:44 pm #

    What an amazing collection of films! during the past few months i have been discovering my heritage and true jewish identity, so this film fest came along at exactly the right time. i have never been before, and i would absolutely love to win tickets!

  28. La Société des Monstres Célèbres March 31, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    Oh what a cool program! Monsters love film and love Jewish culture! We would be thrilled to attend any of the films!

    Um, this sounds awesome. I never knew it existed and I want to learn more about Jewish things!
