This year, 2014, will be the 19th year of the Festival and it runs March 7 through 29. It takes place in Contra Costa County.

The line up looks exciting. Some of the films are:

film Patrick Stewart

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Go to their website to read about all the films.

There are three venues in Contra Costa County:

125 Crescent Dr., Pleasant Hill

4 Orinda Square, Orinda

1722 First Street, Livermore

Tickets range from $8 to $11 with a few of the shorts costing only $3. You can get a Season Pass for $180 that gets you every single film! If I counted correctly there are 46 films.

Films are such a great way to learn about the many Jewish cultures. Try to catch a few.
