FALL FILM FEST

Attend Our Fall Film Fest, a fascinating selection of documentaries, presented by MJFF with our community partners:

Love, Gilda, an intimate documentary portrait of the beloved comedian October 18-21 at the Portland Museum of Art

Ben Gurion: Epilogue, a newly discovered interview from 1968 with the former Prime Minister – November 4th 3:00 PM at the Jewish Community Alliance, Portland

David Bromberg: Unsung Treasure December 2nd 2:30 PM at the PMA. This special MJFF music event includes an intriguing documentary about the genre – bending guitarist followed by a discussion with the film’s director and Bromberg. Plus David Bromberg will perform live at the Portland Museum of Art.

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.
