The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 2017

A Very Special Event You Should Put on Your Calendar

By Ron Merk, Editor in Chief, Indieplex Online Magazine

There’s something truly special about this festival. The stories are important. The filmmakers are brilliant. The programming is perfect. Even the festival trailer each year is a work of art, often with a wink and a chuckle about the festival. What else can I say? Except this: Run, do not walk, to the festival so that you don’t miss it. It’s only here for a short time, and then it’s gone. You will not be disappointed. In fact you will be surprised, thrilled and happy that you’ve seen the amazing program of films that will be on view this year.

Here’s some information about the festival and how to get tickets for the whole festival or individual films:
