Jewish Film Festival opens Feb. 4

The Mizel Arts and Culture Center will host the 19th Annual Denver Jewish Film Festival at the Elaine Wolf Theatre at the Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center from Feb. 5-15.

The two-week festival will feature 28 films, many of which have been nominated for and received Ophir Awards, the Israeli equivalent of the Academy Awards. Of the 28 films, 11 were directed by women.

"I am really proud of the selection our film festival chairs put together, and we are excited to have the opportunity to introduce the Denver community to these extraordinary and resonating films," says Steve Wilson, executive artistic director for the Mizel Arts and Culture Center.

Sponsored by Wagner Wealth Management, the festival will kick off with a party celebrating this year's festival honoree Kathy Neustadt and a screening of the Jewish family comedy It Happened in Saint-Tropez. 

Neustadt is a former president of the JCC and a member of the family that founded The Neustadt International Prize for Literature and the NSK Neustadt Prize for Children't literature.

"The Denver Jewish Film Festival continues to introduce its audiences to a collection of educational and significant movies," Neustadt says. "My family and I remain steadfast in supporting organizations and events that celebrate the arts and literature, and we hope the community joins us in attending the 19th year of this wonderful event."
