The 2017 Maine Jewish Film Festival is Here!

The Festival continues on Friday evening with the Dutch film “Moos.”

Endearing, smart and relatable, Moos is a romantic comedy that keeps you smiling from the opening scene to the closing credits. Uncomfortably unmarried and without a clear career path, the film follows 20-something Moos as she attempts to pursue her dream of getting into Amsterdam’s famed acting academy. Will she make it, or will lies, love affairs and a meddling family derail her dreams? Dutch actress Jip Smit’s luminous performance as Moos and a special cameo by Israeli singing star Asaf Hertz make this an unforgettable film. Don’t miss this heartwarming story, set within the modern Dutch Jewish community, about the ups and downs of love, friendship and family.

No upcoming events at this time.

Through a diverse array of independent films, the MJFF provides culturally relevant and historically significant cinema for audiences from across Maine and beyond. The Portland Museum of Art is proud to partner with Maine Jewish Film Festival, promoting new ideas, inviting discussion, and strengthening the cultural economy in Maine.
