Santa Cruz Jewish Film Festival
2013 was a marvelous success with record audience attendance at the downtown locations – The Del Mar, the Museum of Art and History and Louden Nelson Community Center, in addition to our final weekend and Bar-Bat Mitzvah Gala Celebration at the Jewish Community Center/Temple Beth El. We presented 11 feature and documentary films and four shorts. These award-winning films came to us from Israel, Germany, France, Canada and the United States.
The Gala on April 20, celebrating our 13th year, included a gourmet buffet catered by Pam Ernst, wine-tasting by Soif Wine Bar and live Klezmer and Jazz music by Jeff Brody and Bill Ruskin, along with two Award Winning Films!
Stay tuned for next year’s Festival, which will include many special events, speakers, directors and an Opening Night in downtown Santa Cruz. If you are interested in participating in the Festival as a Board member, Festival organizer or volunteer, please contact us at 831.454.0468.
