Sacramento Jewish Film Festival


Winter is the ideal time to go to the movies. (It’s still winter, right? Sometimes hard to tell with our weather as of late.) This weekend, the Crest Theatre plays host to the Sacramento Jewish Film Festival. Now in its 16th year, the annual festival—co-founded by Margi Park-Landau and Crest General Manager Sid Garcia-Heberger and sponsored by the Crest and The Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region—features four films, each one chosen because it represents “the diversity of the Jewish culture.”

Film times are Thursday, March 7 and Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Enjoy coffee and dessert after Saturday evening’s film and between Sunday’s films. By the way, curious which film the picture on this blog accompanies? It’s Hava Nagila: The Movie, which will be shown on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $10.50 general, but you can buy an all-festival pass for $40. Good to know: Park in the public lot on 10th Street between K and L streets and the Crest will validate your ticket.
