About the ABQ Jewish Film Fest
The JCC’s 6th Annual ABQ Jewish Film Fest in Albuquerque will light up the screens during the last two weeks of July with six recently released film premieres. Each year the Fest endeavors to weave a colorful fabric of uniquely Jewish stories that come to us through movies from around the world. The Fest curators research current films showing at film fests worldwide to select a representative line-up of the finest films for Albuquerque audiences to enjoy.
This year that was an arduous task because not only has the roster of Jewish films grown substantially, but the quality of the films has equally progressed. Even though the task was daunting, it was truly a labor of love, screening and reviewing documentaries, dramas, comedies and all the territory in between from Denmark, Germany, France, Hungary, Belgium, Russia, Poland, Israel, India and the U.S. The six selected films are representative of the best of each genre and showcase the Jewish journey around the world from past to contemporary times.
