Hanukkah Film Festival
The Hanukkah Film Festival will celebrate the Hanukkah season with eight nights of exclusive, award-winning new films. The Austin Jewish Film Festival is joining with film festivals, synagogues, and Jewish organizations across the U.S. and Canada in partnership with Menemsha Films in this new holiday celebration.
Opening night will feature the world premiere of the animated Hanukkah short The Broken Candle. Also featured are two premieres of stories illustrating the unique diversity of the Jewish origins, histories where you least expected it, from the Inquisition (Xueta Island) to a story of Pancho Villa (UnRaveling). Closing night will premiere Here We Are, the most awarded family drama and winner of four Israeli Academy Awards, as well as the most popular Audience Award winner of the season.
