Portland Press Herald Praises MJFF

News & PressMarch 12, 2017

Great coverage of the upcoming Maine Jewish Film Festival in the  Portland Press Herald on Sunday, March 12.  Click here to read the entire column by Bill Nemitz.

Columnist Bill Nemitz touted the breadth, depth and diversity of the 2017 Festival slate, and noted, “amid more open anti-semitism, the 20th Maine Jewish Film Festival can help remedy the lack of knowledge behind hatred.”

“And if you’re still wondering whether a Jewish film festival might be worth a few hours of your time, consider your options over the next couple of weeks.

You can sit by yourself, night after night, in front of the mind-numbing cable news on your living room TV.

Or you can take in something truly different with a roomful of fellow Mainers. And then, even better, linger for a while to talk about it.”
