Looking forward to our 22nd year of bringing the best in international cinema to Maine!
We’ll open the 2019 MJFF with a very special film from Argentina – The Last Suit. Comedic and poignant, this story of an 88 year old tailor who makes the long trip from Buenas Aires to Poland to see the friend who saved his life at the end of WWII, uses a light touch to illuminate a serious story.
Other offerings include the story of America’s first fast food restaurant, a documentary about ‘women helping women’ in the heart of Brooklyn’s Hasidic Community, and a gripping drama about one of the most daring rescues in WWII history.
You’ll meet the activist who saved Washington Square Park, A Jewish artist who studied in London, Paris and Dublin and kept ammunition in her studio and the nice Jewish girls who helped create Bollywood.
Special programs give the opportunity to meet filmmakers, artists and experts who add so much to the film viewing experience.
Tickets will go on sale February 8th. Mark your calendars and we’ll see you at the movies!
