    At Jewish film festival, an expanding universe

    Among the 44 films in the 27th annual Boston Jewish Film Festival are Jewish-themed films in a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction genres, including dramas, comedies, thrillers, and even horror. Not only are some 15 countries represented in this festival, which runs Nov. 4-16 at multiple area venues, but many films depict Jewish life in uncommon places around the globe. Director Ivan Nichev’s “Bulgarian Rhapsody” (Nov. 7 and 8) re-creates Bulgarian Jewish culture in a story of first love and friendship set in the summer of 1943. Director Bazi Gete’s “Red Leaves” (Nov. 7, 8, and 15) is a mostly Amharic-language film that offers a rare look at a contemporary Israeli-Ethiopian community.

    David Ganz, at 81; passionate about family, flying, and his work
    Mr. Ganz “was so taken with the film that he spoke with the director and producer and said, ‘I really think we should get this into schools,’ ” said his wife, who had chaired the board of the Boston Jewish Film Festival, where Mr. Ganz saw the film the first of many times.

    JewliciousReels: What We Missed at Recent Fests – Boston

    I wasn’t able to make it to Boston for the annual Boston Jewish Film Festival – November 4-16. Out of over 400 submissions, they fest screen 62 films at 17 venues in Boston. It was the festival’s 27th year, and the first year for its new artistic director, Ariana Cohen-Halberstam. An Oberlin grad and experienced film editor, she moved to Boston from Manhattan seven months ago. You may know her from NYC’s Manhattan JCC and its Israel film festivals and ReelAbilities fests.
