Portland celebrates cinematic diversity this summer during the 23rd Portland Jewish Film Festival, beginning Sunday, June 14th.

The festival is produced by the Northwest Film Center and co-presented by the Institute for Judaic Studies.

Although the festival highlights Jewish culture, history, and identity, the themes of these films are about issues and experiences that everyone, regardless of culture, can relate to.

There will be 18 films featured this year in the Portland Jewish Film Festival. The films at the festival will vary in both tone and genre, from the documentary East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem to the road-trip comedy Magic Men

See the Trailer Below

Running from June 14th until June 28th, the Portland Jewish Film Festival will be a fortnight to remember for both film and history buffs.
