The Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival is the premier festival in the county showing documentaries, dramas and comedies portraying Jewish life around the world. The Jewish Film Festival is much more than just a series of films!

Tue, Nov 12 1 & 7pm
Twelve year-old Brooklynite Abe Solomon-Odeh (Noah Schnapp, Stranger Things) is half-Israeli Jewish and half-Palestinian Muslim. He spends hours in the kitchen concocting recipes, food blogging, and slipping out of the house to explore New York's indie food scene. But when it comes to navigating his family's huge culture clash, he's at a loss. During one chaotic family dinner, Abe escapes and discovers a street fair and the culinary magic of Chico (Seu Jorge, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou), a talented Afro-Brazilian chef. An unlikely friendship helps Abe find his identity and discover how food can bring people together in this charming and poignant feast for the senses.

Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas: A Short Film Series
Moved to Mon, Nov 18 1 & 7pm
An offbeat musical-documentary, Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas is about Jewish immigrant-songwriters, including Irving Berlin and Mel Tormé, who wrote the soundtrack to America's most popular holiday: Christmas. A Thousand Kisses is an endearing, animated true love story. Hilarious award-winning Jewish Blind Date follows unhappy Mary Lou as she reconnects to her Jewish roots in order to marry a religious man. Award-winning Edek weaves storytelling with hip hop as a Holocaust survivor searches for the man who saved her. Academy Award nominated Joe's Violin traces the life of a Holocaust survivor who donates his violin to an inner-city girls' school in the Bronx.
